Did you know that everything in the Universe is energy? You are an Energy Being. Oriental Medicine teaches us every cell in your body is a form of energy. Your tissues, muscles and organs are a form of energy. Your thoughts are a form of energy. Illness, whether it shows up physically, mentally or emotionally, is a form of energy.
Albert Einstein’s life long research proved to us energy can not be created or destroyed, only transformed. In fact, energy is constantly in the process of transforming. The only question with your body’s energy is whether it is transforming for better or for worse. When energy becomes blocked, one area may receive too much, while another area too little. Either way, your flow is out of balance and health problems can begin. Energy blockages are the underlying cause of all illness.
Your vital life force, known as Qi, flows through a complex, invisible matrix known as your Meridian System. The meridian system acts as a network of communications between the physical and the of psycho-spiritual processes.
When stress arises in your daily life or your emotions get the best of you, the flow of Qi through your meridian system gets disrupted. If Qi stays disrupted or “stuck” for long periods of time, your meridian system becomes imbalanced and physical symptoms begin to manifest.
On the other hand, physical trauma blocks Qi flow which may create emotional stress. When either happens, you are moving away from health, success and happiness toward illness.
Imagine your body’s energy systems, your Meridians, are like a river. A river provides nourishment, growth and life to our planet but if a river gets blocked, our vibrant landscape begins to decline, downstream by drought or upstream by flood. When we remove the blockage, a natural balance can return.
