Makko Ho/Do In
The Makko Ho are the "Stretching of the Meridians" deepened and studied by the Master Shizuto Masunaga. These simple movements are designed to stimulate and make the energy in meridians to flow.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, blockages are the cause of disease, therefore in order to avoid any blockages, the energy in the meridians must flow constantly.
The Makko Ho are the modern readaptation of what was once the Do In practice.
As Dr. Michio Kushi says in his "The book of Do In":
"From these ancient macrobiotic exercises (Do In) all physical, mental and spiritual exercises, various methods of meditation, litanies, yoga exercises, psychophysiological training, martial arts and other autonomous development methods are actually derived. "
