The meridians system of human body is composed of meridians and collaterals. Among them, the coarser, deeper and longitudinal main arteries are called “meridians”, also known as “meridians”. The smaller branches of meridians exist in both deep and shallow parts, and the network between meridians is called “collaterals”, also known as “collaterals”.
The meridians include twelve meridians and eight odd meridians, as well as twelve meridians, twelve meridians and twelve skin parts attached to the twelve meridians. Collaterals are divided into different collaterals, floating collaterals and sun collaterals. Twelve meridians (collectively referred to as ZHENGJING) and eight extra meridians (collectively referred to as extra meridians) are the main parts of the meridians (if the twelve meridians plus Ren and Du two meridians are called fourteen meridians).
“Huangdi Neijing” said: “the meridians are blocked; the disease is born in inhumanity, and it is treated with massage”, indicating that massage has the effect of dredging the meridians. For example, massaging Zusanli and pushing the spleen meridian can increase the secretion function of digestive juice. From the perspective of modern medicine, massage mainly stimulates the peripheral nerves, promotes the blood and lymphatic circulation and the metabolic process between tissues, so as to coordinate the functions of various tissues and organs, and improve the new metabolic level of functions.
Skills in massage
Touch the pain point
Touch the pain points and tenderness areas. The patient complains of pain in a certain part, which is difficult to reflect the specific situation of the diseased part. Only by palpation and repeated touch can we understand it clearly. When palpating, we should distinguish the main pain points and secondary pain points. In the process of treatment, the main pain points and secondary pain points will transform each other. We should touch them repeatedly and grasp the key points in time, so as to correctly guide clinical treatment.
The extent, location and degree of tenderness can be used to identify whether it is tendon injury or bone injury. Those with obvious and sharp tenderness are mostly fractures; Those with mild tenderness and a wide range of tenderness are mostly tendons.
Look for swelling
Those with hard swelling and blue skin are fresh injuries; The injury lasts for a long time, the blood stasis stagnates, and it can also swell and harden. The swelling is soft, cyan and yellow, which is an old injury; Fresh injury spills blood outside the vein, which is stagnated under the skin or from the inside to the surface, and it can also be swollen and soft. Diagnosis should be made according to the history and the depth and evolution of the injury.
Touching the deformities such as high protrusion and depression of the affected part can judge the nature, location and displacement of fracture and dislocation, as well as whether the fracture reduction is smooth.
Touch for abnormal activity swelling
The long tubular bone of the limbs is injured, and there is abnormal activity in the inactive part, indicating the existence of fracture. Patients with confirmed fractures still have abnormal activity at the broken end, indicating that the fracture has not been connected. The abnormal activity of each joint mostly indicates the complete rupture of the corresponding ligament.
