What are Tibetan Figure 8's?

"Of the many subsidiary energy flows to the primary meridians, Tibetan medicine
mentions one which circles in a Figure 8 pattern along the body's front and back,
as well as in smaller patterns around the body.  Sometimes, balancing using the
following exercise (Tibetan Figure 8's) results in immediate positive change in
healing time, joint mobility and pain."

Celtic Weave. (2007)

"The body's energies spin, spiral, curve, twist, crisscross and weave themselves
into patterns of magnificent beauty.  I call these energies the Celtic Weave pattern.  
In the East, it has been called the "Tibetan Energy Ring...A special type of figure
eight pattern that sits within the Celtic Weave is distinguished by pronounced
movement with greater luminescence...I believe this is the energy referred to as the
Rings, spoken of in ancient healing traditions emerging from Tibet."

Figure 8 Energy Flow:  These energies are described in the book Touch for
Health, by Dr. John F. Thie DC, as subsidiary energy pathways.  Our experience
has shown them to be extremely powerful energy corrections which can be sued to
balance the energy of other systems in the body.  They appear to have a high
priority in the healing continuum."
