Pain and Meridians
Just what are “meridians” in the body?
Put simply, energy circulates through your body along a specific network of channels.
They are energy channels “transporting” life energy—Chi/Qi—throughout the body. If there are blockages in the channels, there will be a lack of energy supply to certain areas of the body, or a surplus of energy in other areas.
Energy blockages can be the result of stress, an injury or trauma, or bad living habits (poor eating habits, lack of exercise, poor moods and victim language) and can be traced to the root of most health problems and chronic pain. Our energy flow affects how we feel, how we think, and the overall condition of our health.
It is only because of the existence of this energy in our body that we can move, breathe, digest food…think and even feel. If the balance is disturbed, that is, if the flow of one of these forces is greater than the other, illness arises. These forces – energies – flow through definite channels in the body, called ‘body meridians’ (body’s healing energy pathways)
In some ways, Tapping is similar to acupuncture. Like Tapping, acupuncture achieves healing through stimulating the body’s meridians and energy flow. However, unlike Tapping, acupuncture involves needles and “no needles” is definitely a plus!
This concept comes from the doctrines of traditional Chinese medicine, which referred to the body’s energy as “chi.” In ancient times, the Chinese discovered 100 meridian points. They also discovered that by stimulating these meridian points, they could heal. Call it energy, call it the Source, call it life force, call it chi, qi… Whatever you want to call it, it works
Tapping is simple and painless. It can be learned by anyone. And you can apply it to yourself, whenever you want, wherever you are. It’s less expensive and less time consuming. It can be used with specific emotional intent towards your own unique life challenges and experiences. Most importantly, it gives you the power to heal yourself, putting control over your destiny back into your own hands.
