Meridian Wellness

Our body is like a garden. It needs love, nourishment, tending, and rest, to flourish. We flow through the seasons year after year, rarely giving thought to the natural course of things. The balance of the heavens, clouds, mountains, rains, and rivers are all part of nature's giving and taking, coming and going; much like the flow of blood, energy, and cell regeneration in our bodies.

Our physical body cycles through its own seasons. And with each new season comes a little dying, resting, rebirth, and growth. As a child, did you ever skin your knee and watch in wonder as the wound magically went through its healing cycle? Even more amazing was the seed that pushed its way through the moistened earth and turned into a tomato. It's all part of living, growing, and tending in nature's time and cycles.

In the natural world, disasters throw things out of balance, just like fever, pneumonia or cancer can wreak havoc on our body. Did you ever notice how nature begins healing? It's much like when as children we watched in amazement as our skinned knee repaired itself. Healing is part of nature's design, and although outside help sometimes moves the healing along, nature finds a way of regenerating life. Our body is the same. It is our own inner ability to heal that does all the work.

Like rivers flowing through the landscape, MERIDIANS are channels for blood and chi (qi/prana) that flow over the surface of our body. They form a network that connects all our organs and tissues. Like a river that transports nutrients and food to sustain life in the environment through which it flows, the meridians carry supply of vital energy to ensure the good health of our organs throughout our body.

When a blockage occurs in any of our meridians, there will be a disruption to the flow and balance within our body system and thus we become ill. Therefore, it's wise to practise preventive healthcare by taking care of our meridians to prevent any traffic jam along them.

Thanks to over 2500 years of methodical observation and empirical experience by the Chinese, and today's modern life science, we now know exactly how to care for our meridians and therefore our health. Meridian 101 is an easy-to-learn method to do just that.

Meridian 101 will teach you how to stimulate selected acupressure points along major meridians to achieve tiptop balance, alleviate a wide range of everyday aches and pains, allergies, poor circulation, sleeplessness, and other chronic complaints. Once you've acquired the acupressure massage and guasha know-how, you can apply Meridian 101 in a D.I.Y. manner for the rest of your life.

Since 2007, we have been sharing passionately our method with over a thousand people in Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia and even India. We are happy to have contributed not only to the health and fitness of these participants, but also through them to touch the lives of their families members and friends. Many have enhanced their well-being and cultivated simple but highly effective preventive healthcare routines using Meridian 101.

Guasha 刮痧Meridian Guasha

Guasha is a healing technique based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it has been practised for thousands of years. Guasha stimulates the flow of qi and blood within our meridian systems and it is done through the use of a guasha board pressing on the skin along meridian lines. It may result in the appearance of small red patches.

"Gua" means to scrape or rub. "Sha" means sand particle-like reddish patches on skin. Sha is the term used to describe blood in the subcutaneous tissue before and after it is raised as a small red bump. The Sha bump should fade in 2-4 days.

What are the benefits of Guasha?

Guasha can be used to prevent and treat diseases and strengthen the body. It is especially helpful for pain relief for head, neck, shoulder, joint and back pain, migraine, PMS, osteoporosis, rheumatism. It is also able to provide relief for various ailments caused by functional disharmony of the internal organs.

Guasha tunes up our own internal self-healing mechanism, stimulates the immune system, detoxifies and de-acidifies, promotes the circulation, regulates functions and organs, removes blockades and pain, revitalizes and regenerates, diminishes stress, fatigue and burn-out, rebalances emotions, relaxes and promotes a healthy state of being.

Guasha treatment invloves the use of specially formulated herbal essential oils on a particular area of the skin before "scraping" the area with a guasha scraping board. The herbal essential oil will lubricate the scraping and supply critical herbal ingredients to boost the therapeutic effects on the meridians. The guasha scraping board is usually made of buffalo horn or jade. Where there are blockages (meaning where disorders are hidden), red spots appear under the skin. There is no pain felt either during nor after the treatment. On the contrary, relief is felt almost instantly. The red spots will fully disappear within 3 to 7 days.

刮痧是什么?

刮痧是在中医刮的经络学说和生物的全息理论指导下进行的,主要功能是增强人体的自我康复能力。用具有刮痧本草精油和刮痧板,刮痧板常用的有水牛角和玉石两种。操作方法是用刮痧板在涂了刮痧本草精油的皮肤上刮,因为体表和脏腑有一定的联系,能够达到治疗效果。

刮痧的痧是什么?

有代谢产物的血液。体内的风湿之气和血液里的一些代谢产物,引起了血液循环障碍就会出痧刮出来的痧和淤血不是一回事:淤血多是由外伤引起的,出血量比较多,有淤血的部位都疼痛,活动不便。刮痧以后出现的红色或者紫红色的斑点,出血量很少,是从毛细血管中渗透出来的,刮完痧就是在皮肤下面,我们看得见的一种红色或者紫红色的斑点和斑片,实际上是渗出于血管之外含以后就不痛了,而且由于痧的排出促进了血液循环,增加了新陈代谢的速度,具有治疗的作用刮痧入门是非常容易的,非常适合家庭保健,没有什么医学基础知识也照样可以学会。首先一定要有刮痧本草精油,刮痧本草精油有润滑的作用,里面含有一些中药成分,可以活血化瘀、减轻刮痧过程中的疼痛、预防感染。刮痧板的特殊形状是为了适应身体各个解剖位置的需要,这样刮起来对经络和穴位的刺激作用会更到位,效果也会更好。

刮痧的方法不仅能治疗颈椎病、腰腿疼、肩周炎、骨质增生,还有调节内脏的作用。这是因为刮痧的具体部位与内脏都是有联系的,如小指的经络是直接通到心脏的,与大指相连的经络直接通到肺脏,刮痧时通过经络的传导作用可以调整心肺功能,实际上刮痧是在调动人体内部的一种康复能力,人有病不一定就必须打针吃药,我们体内就有一个很好的大药库,这个药库也就是自身的经络系统,比如心脏不好的人可以经常刮一刮内关。

先涂刮痧本草精油,手托住要刮的部位,让患者肌肉放松,然后用刮板从上向下的刮,刮痧基本的操作方式是从上向下、从里向外,而且刮板和身体基本上呈 45度夹角,要有一定的压力。一直刮到局部毛孔张开了就可以了。等到痧退了以后就可以刮第二次了。

刮痧的注意事项

人体最大的器官是皮肤,皮肤保护着人体不受细菌的侵犯,而且皮肤有代谢的功能,刮痧使毛孔张开后把体内的废物通过皮肤代谢出去了,这也是刮痧作用的一个方面。当然也不能说把全身皮肤都刮一刮,皮肤张开后全身的疾病就解除了。刮痧的时候要背着风,因为刮痧使毛孔张开后如果被风吹着容易中寒邪

饥饿状态、运动后、大出血后体质都比较虚弱,不宜刮痧。
