Meridians – Invisible organs of the human body

In the ancient medical work “Huangdi Neijing”(The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic), there is a concept throughout the book. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that this is an invisible organ that cannot be found through human anatomy, but it dominates people’s life and death. It is closely related to the formation of various diseases. Today we will talk about this invisible organ of the human body – meridians.

Meridians are the general term for “meridians” and “collaterals”. Meridians are the longitudinal axis, connecting the energy gateways of various viscera and extremities of the limbs; collaterals are small branches that criss-cross and network the whole body.

The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic says: Spiritual Pivot, which circulates qi and blood, regulates yin and yang, decides life and death, treats all kinds of diseases, regulates deficiency and excess, it must be unblocked.

The spiritual pivot here refers to the meridian, which is regarded as the hub of the soul in traditional Chinese medicine. It is believed that the meridian is the place where the soul is carried. Chinese medicine believes that human physiological activities are centered on the viscera. If the viscera are compared to tree roots Then the meridian is the trunk, and the qi and blood are the nutrition.

The Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Internal Medicine’s “Su Wen (Exploring the Fundamental Issues of the Relationship between Man and Nature‧Ju Pain Theory (How Diseases Are Formed)” said: All diseases are arise from the imbalance of Qi,

Anger causes Qi to rise, joy causes Qi to slow down, sadness causes Qi to disappear, Fear causes the qi to descend, cold causes the qi to draw back, agitation causes the qi to vent, fright causes the qi to become disordered, fatigue causes the qi to deplete, and thinking causes the qi to stagnate.

This is the physical manifestation of the nine qi in Chinese medicine.

From this, we can also know how the emotions driven by our conscious cognition affect the performance of breath in the meridians, and then cause the diseases of various viscera.

In the basic five-day and four-night itinerary of TULA wellness retreat, we designed a series of mind-brain coordination exercises to restore balance, breath pressure release, massage therapy to dredge meridians, and healthy diet to invigorate Qi, and in each independent theme There are Wellness master class in the retreat itinerary, so that each participant has the opportunity to ask questions and learn the healthy way to live in harmony with nature cycle in the workshop.
