Really Big News: Science Proves Meridians Exist

This text comes from By Azriel ReShel on Wednesday April 20th, 2016 at the website upliftconnect.com. This is really big news, but I somehow don’t feel that it is so new. I’ve “believed” it true for years, never thought it could be any other way. I have also seen the real effects of practicing the principles of tai chi and qigong, both of which are mentioned in this article. Countless others have for millennia, as well. Either way, it’s good to have it confirmed by science, right?
