The system of the meridians is used by scientifically recognized methods such as traditional Chinese medical techniques, acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology. The meridians are special channels along which the vital energy flows. The main parts of this system are the twelve standard meridians related to main organs. According to this theory the physical symptoms and pain are caused by disorders in the flow of the vital energy. The flow can be influenced by stimulation of the main meridian points (acupuncture/acupressure points) which can soothe the symptoms. The Naturhelix Body Candle can help to stimulate these points and can contribute to the recovery. Each meridian is attached to a separate system of organs:
- Urinary Bladder Meridian
- Kidney Meridian
- Gall Bladder Meridian
- Liver Meridian
- Stomach Meridian
- Spleen/Pancreas Meridian
- Large Intestine Meridian/Colon Meridian
- Lung Meridian
- Triple Warmer Meridian
- Pericardium Meridian
- Small Intestine Meridian
- Heart Meridian
Chinese children learn the place and effect of the main meridian (acupuncture) points in elementary school and use them as well. The system, the place and effect of the acupuncture points are also recognized by the World Health Organization of the UN (WHO). These points are pressure-sensitive and have more receptors than the other parts of the skin. As breathing points they have higher carbon dioxide emission. They are balancing, calmative as well as animating points. The main acupuncture points can be easily found, in case of points treating special problems, or hard to treat please consult a naturopath.
Through the light warm and vacuum effect and the vapours of the essential oils, the body candle can stimulate the meridian points and helps to balance the flows of energy to ease the symptoms. All available points on our body can be treated with the body candle. The efficiency of the treatment can be improved by giving a massage or by a light pressure on the relevant point/acupressure point.
