Shifting your awareness from muscles, tendons, bones and skin to Qi brings many benefits to you and your clients. You will find yourself creating new techniques that support your own ease and comfort while you work. Your clients will notice chronic ailments clearing up while experiencing a deeper sense of themselves.
Meridian Massage is not the latest, greatest technique that will solve all issues, but it will open up more possibilities for practitioners who are curious about energetic medicine. Energy, known as Qi, in Chinese medicine, is the basis for our health and our distress. When our Qi is plentiful and flowing, our muscles, tendons, bones, organs, and skin radiate health and function with ease. When our Qi is stagnant or depleted, we experience pain and dysfunction.
The premise is very simple.
Learning the dynamics of Qi – where it flows and how to work with it is the trick. Curiosity and willingness to experiment are key ingredients.
While you practice your technique today, ask yourself: “What does this person’s Qi feel like?” Let yourself wonder and allow your body to answer. Let the question linger in your mind, let your awareness rest in your breath, and watch as your hands find new ways to sense, feel, and respond to the physical and energetic qualities of the person on your table.
The premise is simple. The practice takes time and persistence.
