Meridian Exercise for Self-Healing (Paperback): Classified by Common Symptoms

  • Review
  • In ancient China energy balancing exercises called Do-in and An-jiao were practiced. Master Masunaga studied various traditional exercises and developed a modern version called Meridian Exercises. Meridian Exercises complement a shiatsu session and empower people to balance their own energy on a regular basis. Not only do Meridian Exercises serve to speed up the healing process, they also serve to maintain our health.

    The main difference between Meridian Exercises and other forms of stretching exercises is the active use of visualization. The mental imagery is used along with movements as a device to keep our mind engaged with our body. There is no predetermined or "correct" image for a particular movement. The best images are dynamic and full of life, like billowing clouds or cascading water, which take us beyond the boundary of our bodies. For example, instead of trying to bend forward from a standing position to touch the toes, we can visualize the lower half of our body as a cliff and the upper half as a waterfall tumbling over it. In this way, imagery takes away the tension and rigidity associated with doing a particular stretch or movement.

  • Our Exercises page now has a video of meridian exercises.
    Join in while Stephen Brown walks you through each of ten exercises. It's a 15 minute set. This is perfect for anyone who needs help with the exercises or wants to start a regular daily practice.
    The meridian exercises video - balancing energy for mind-body health is our offering to you as you progress toward sustained well-being.

    Every style is different in its own way, while sharing a common ancestry. At the heart of each is the pioneering work of Shizuto Masunaga, as collected in his texts, Zen Shiatsu and Meridian Exercises.

    Again and again we have been asked by our participants for a detailed explanation of the Meridian Yoga exercises which are an integral part of our seminars. This book is the result of these many requests.

    It is an illustrated guide for people who don’t yet know the exercises, as well as a consolidated reminder for those who have attended our seminars.
