The Oriental view of health looks at the physical, emotional and spiritual. If the yin and yang are correctly balanced, the individual’s health is good, but an imbalance leads to signs of disease. When the flow of chi is not correct in can lead to discomfort and disease. Health is viewed more broadly – including connections with other people, ourselves and the environment. When these interactions are unsettled it can lead to the yin and yang being out of balance (or vice-versa). The chi travelling along the meridian allows the organs to perform their functions. Pressure points along the meridians can be utilised via massage to influence the flow of chi.
