this morning i woke up, like many mornings previous
with really bad cramps in the arches of my feet
the left one in particular
this has not happened in a while
so when i moseyed out of my bedroom this morning like a china doll with wrapped feet
i decided to investigate
my first google search......
i have always been so enthralled with energy meridians and reflexology.
You can pinch in between your thumb & first finger to relieve a headache!
Have you ever noticed how a simple foot rub can relieve stress and body pain?
THE PREMIS IS THAT THE FEET & THE HANDS CORRESPOND TO ORGANS, GLANDS AND OTHER BODY PARTS.
here is a VERY basic chart SO YOU CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND
what the HELL i am talking about
APPLYING PRESSURE TO THESE REFLEXIVE AREAS CAN PROMOTE HEALTH TO THEIR RELATED ORGANS & ENERGETIC PATHWAYS
theories apply to acupuncture, acupressure, massage, TORTURE....you get the ideaR
Energy Meridians work along the same lines, they are what connects the organ to its pressure point.
Chinese Medicine & the study of
Qi: OUR LIFE ENERGY
Meridians are divided into Yin and Yang groups.

The Yin Meridians of the leg are Spleen, Kidney, and Liver.
The Yang meridians of the leg are Stomach, Bladder, and Gall Bladder
i want to jump back for a second

Chinese Medicine = Energetic Pathways/Chinese Culture = Binding Feet

OK OK OK, i guess i didnt really feel that bad this morning!

and even better care of them by the end of the week when i have hit the NIKE employee store.
