Each meridian is associated with a different organ system. Along the pathway of each meridian lies numerous energetic acupoints, each acupoint has a unique energetic function, and it is believed that by stimulating these acupoints can help healing many health disorders, restoring the homeostasis of a living body, and preventing the disorders of body and mind.
