What the heck is Meridian Stretching?

The Meridian Flexibility System is a program of 16 powerful stretching exercises for each level of practice: Beginner, Intermediate, Assisted, and Advanced.


Sixteen (16) different types of stretches, eight for the upper and eight for the lower body, each one uniquely defined by bone rotational interrelationships and specific muscle groups. Each type of stretch provides the best leverage to stretch individual or synergistic groups of muscles.

Each type of stretch also creates accompanying and predictable physiological and psychological improvements in a person. This system embodies a balanced approach to physical and mental fitness. It is a predictable, noninvasive, preventative health program with resulting gains in physical strength and functioning, psychological fitness, and spiritual and emotional development.

These exact relations between muscle groups, different kinds of stretches, energy meridians, physiological functions, and personality traits became known as The Meridian Flexibility System.
