Learn About the Meridians

Here is an interactive flash application that informs you of the different acupuncture points.

In Chinese medicine, meridians are invisible pathways in the body that circulate the flow of blood and link the individual to cosmic forces or influences. These meridians protect the body against external causes of disease, and regulate the yin/yang balance. Acupuncture is the use of very fine needles long the points of the meridians to achieve balance.

At these points, the body's energy can be accessed for clearing blockages or stagnation, thereby restoring natural and healthy energy flow.
