is a Chinese method of healing that has been practiced for over 3,000
years and which works on the “meridians” energy channels that run
in a network through the body. In a healthy body, the Ch’i, or
essential energy, flows freely and evenly through the meridians. But when
blockages occur, the body becomes unbalanced, Ch’i is trapped and disease
Throughout this network are located key pressure points that can be worked on to release blockages and restore the body to its natural balance. The practitioner massages these points, using only the thumbs, to either increase or decrease the flow of energy and thereby restore the body to health.
