Meridian Charts

The meridian charts are the visual ways of showing where the meridians are. The meridians are the energy pathways on our body, they are invisible. The meridian charts give us a convenient way of studying and locating meridians and acupuncture points. There are also meridian charts drawn on dummies.

There are 12 main meridians, 8 extraordinary meridians. The centerlines of the body are the locations of the governor vessel and conception vessel. They belong to the extraordinary meridians, because they play such an important role in the body, they are grouped with the other 12 main meridians and described as the 14 main meridians.
