Meridiano del Intestino delgadoThis therapy is probably one of the subtlest. It is based on correcting imbalances of energy that travels through the body. Energy is represented by a series of points, called meridians. There are 12 meridians, each representing an organ (liver, lung, etc.). or viscera (bladder, gallbladder, etc.)..These meridians go throughout the body from top to bottom and from bottom to top.

To achieve this balance, we use the command of the meridian points concerned. There are, among others, points to disperse (remove energy), tonify (increase energy), or send energy to another meridian.
