I did this on Colonel in preparation for the next step. Strengthening its Yin, the Lung meridian can be done in various ways.
To be able to fully rest and rejuvenate it is important to feel safe, but this won’t be possible as long as the Triple Warmer is still on alert.
Stroking with a flat hand against the normal direction of fl ow will sedate a meridian.
TTouch can relieve not just physical pain, but also restore emotional balance and a sense of well being.
