The Universal Benefits of Meridian “Tapping”
Tapping is definitely one of the first exercises that stand out in a Dahn Yoga class. In fact, it’s a regular part of the Warm-ups, which includes tapping the body methodically and with rhythm and is sometimes a part of the Main Exercises. It may seem like you are simply “hitting” yourself, but this age-old technique has many health benefits such as improved blood and energy circulation, stress-relief, and so much more!
Most importantly, tapping is a simple technique designed to improve circulation and activate the flow of energy along the body’s Energy Pathways (Meridians) and Energy Centers (Chakras). The most important of these is located in the center of the lower abdomen, about two inches below the navel. In Korean, this is known as the lower “DahnJon.” In China, it is called the “DanTian.” Tapping regularly can create balance in your body and make a significant difference you overall health.
