This meridian health exercise, although it looks simple, can help the body to open up the meridians and make people healthy. There are many benefits to tapping them:
In ancient Chinese medicine, everyone called the Governor Vessel as “the sea of Yang vessels”. Once the yang qi of the Du channel is blocked, the disease will spread throughout the whole body. We stretch the entire Du channel by jumping on the meridian health exercises, so that the blood rushes in the body, and when it encounters a stasis point, it breaks through.
Pull belt pulse
The belt pulse mainly refers to the waist and abdomen around the body, which is the only horizontal belt pulse in our meridians We are most afraid of the cold, so we can heat up the veins through pulling, knocking and combing in the meridian exercises.
Tap the bladder meridian
Taping the bladder meridian frequently can not only improve the quality of blood supply to the brain, but also stimulate the cells of the brain nerves, so that everyone can have a better memory and be energetic all the time in a state of abundance.
Pounding the Stomach Meridian
The distance from the bottom of the collarbone to the fourth toe on both feet is called stomach meridian. Beating the stomach meridian can not only make people’s facial skin better, but also make the skin more lustrous. Even if you usually stay up late, you will basically not have a haggard face.
Tap the liver and gallbladder meridian
From the middle of the buttocks to the bottom of the ankle is the gallbladder meridian of the human body. If there is not enough bile, the oil in the food cannot be completely decomposed, and the hair will become particularly oily, especially in summer. Therefore, tapping the gallbladder meridian properly in life can not only speed up the secretion of bile, but also make everyone’s hair more beautiful.
Meridian health preservation will not be effective overnight, it needs long-term persistence, As a beginner, first of all, don’t be greedy, just do 5 minutes for each acupuncture point; secondly, pay attention to the strength and depth of the movement, and let the whole body’s energy and spirit be concentrated on the acupuncture points when doing it.
