Massage therapy school has started and I’m learning the basics of Shiatsu. The very first meridians we learned last week were two related to the heart. What’s a meridian? According to traditional chinese medicine theory our bodies are fueled by lines of energy which western science can measure as electromagnetic fields. Along these lines of energy are specific points that can get blocked. Techniques such as shiatsu and acupuncture can open these points.
The real heart meridians run down the arm, unlike my heart meridian drawing above. As is often the case, I’ve done this piece of art but I’ll figure out what it really means later. I went with the first words that came to mind.
