Each of the main meridians is connected with the body and together they form a unified system. By acting on biologically active points on the meridians, a person can influence the functions of the organs. The points can be influenced by the method of acupuncture or acupressure, pressing with your fingers.

In some cases, when there are no drugs or a doctor near, pressing on biologically active points can save a life or simply get rid of a malaise. Harmonizing points are located at the beginning and at the end of the meridians. Pressing on them contributes to the harmonization of the work of all organs controlled by this meridian.
