Meridians are pathway-like regions in the body, both at the surface and the exterior, where your qi can be affected and where the body's internal state can manifest itself. Meridians are usually displayed like connect-the-dot lines between acupoints but they are in reality more like zones than narrow lines. It is via the meridians that any acupuncturist or Chinese medical massage therapist interacts with your qi, and it is also the meridian system that accounts for how many of the movements in qigong are designed.
