The First Experiment with Energy in Our Own Meridian System
The meridian system of our body plays an important role in deciding life and death and treating diseases since it has been scientifically proven for years in real life that the meridian system controls the functions of the whole body. The value of acupuncture for the treatment of internal medical disorders has been proven for years without a doubt. Acupuncture is the practical ways used to produce the stimulation of specific sites on the body in order to influence broad restorative changes within the system and thereby help the body return to its optimal functional capacity. If we could learn how to train our meridian system and keep the system healthy with acupressure massage therapy, we would be healthy and work more energetically and live a long life. The massage of acupoints, or acupressure massage, is just one of the easy and simple ways that will stimulate meridians and keep the vital organs in good condition. Below is a typical example of acupressure massage therapy for us to learn how to acupressure massage the acupoint, Zusanli (ST 36) and experience those superior natural effects in our own body.
Acupressure Massaging the Acupoint, Zusanli (ST 36)
Stomach 36, known as Zusanli in Chinese pronunciation, is in fact one of the most commonly used and popular acupuncture points in our body meridian system for its ability to invigorate. Leg Three Mile is the English translation word by word of its Chinese name. Stomach 36 is known primarily for its ability to invigorate. Stomach 36 or Zusanli is a very important and effective versatile acupuncture point and has been used for thousands of years to promote longevity, strengthen the immune system, treat stomach problems, digestive problems from abdominal pain, constipation, indigestion and poor appetite, to diarrhea to heartburn to nausea to hiccups, fatigue, dizziness, hypertension, tinnitus, depression, generalized pain, paralysis, chest fullness and palpitations, shortness of breath, chills and fever, urinary tract infections, chronic disease and problems with the knees and lower legs. ST36, its acupuncturist lingo, is located on the shin bone. It is found about a hand length (four fingers widths) below the apex of the patella, just one finger width away outside the prominent tibia bone in a muscle groove between the anterior tibialis and extensor digitorum longus muscles. Performing the acupressure massage treatment is to press and rub into this point hard 30 times per minute with your thumb. Press your thumb hard into the acupoint and count 1, 2. Then, release your thumb and count 1, 2. Then, repeat the press and release massage routine. The pressure is supposed to be hard enough to produce a strong sensation that sometimes travels down the leg (to reach De Qi and achieve the desired sensation). Regardless of age or gender, you can massage Stomach 36 or Zusanli daily with the press and release routines for five minutes each time, 2 or 3 times a day.
When massaging Zusanli (ST 36) on the right leg, you put the left thumb on the acupoint Zusanli (ST 36), and the other four fingers of the left hand holding the shin bone on other side while keeping the left thumb perpendicular to the surface rhythmically about 30 times per min. The force used to press the acupoint should be strong enough to bring the numbness, distension and sore sensation at the location of the acupoint. You can get better results if you feel a current (Qi) passing through the acupoint to somewhere (De Qi). Sometimes your own hand is not strong enough to bring the desired sensation (De Qi) because the muscles nearby zusanli (ST 36) are full-grown; then, you need assistant or use a supplementary apparatus.
This is a powerful form of acupressure massage self-care that is free, quick and simple to do at home for yourself and your family.
