Kodaishin Therapy is a life-changing treatment that works on the deepest Extraordinary Meridians of destiny and ancestry, to create a major shift. This ancient system of acupuncture uses specialized gold and silver needles that are non-inserted, and unique to this style. The treatment is very gentle and non-invasive. It is a technically sophisticated complete health care system.
Japanese medical tradition has a dynamic history dating back to the 6th century AD and earlier. This practice has roots in the tradition of blind acupuncturists in ancient Japan, who were valued for their greater sensitivity to the energetic systems, and learned to heal effectively without inserting needles into the body. Kodaishin 古代鍼 means “ancient acupuncture”. Kodaishin is different from most modern forms of acupuncture in that it uses a non-invasive treatment method, and places greater emphasis on the eight extraordinary meridians. It is a powerful transformational healing system for body, mind and spirit.
“I came to Srijana with a torn knee ligament. The Kodaishin session was an no-needle energy treatment on two acupuncture points. The next day my knee was fine, but by surprise that was the day I stopped smoking forever. I’ve been a chain smoker my whole life. Huh? I asked Srijana what in the world she did. She said “It’s a destiny treatment. I just listened to your body.” Thank you, Srijana! Christin M.
The Eight X-Meridians are rivers of Ancestral Essence (Jing) on the Genetic Level (DNA) of the client. Thus the Kodaishin protocol taps into the deepest essence of an individual’s humanity and destiny. As negative holding patterns are released, energy blockages within the X-Meridians return to a normal flow, allowing the body to return to a state of overall balance and harmony. Working with the X-Meridians can be highly beneficial and efficient, because it allows the rapid release of genetic predispositions and ancestral blockages, to promote health and longevity.
Meridian Activation Without Penetration
People often mistakenly believe that Oriental medicine means penetrating the skin with needles, but this is not necessarily true. There are many ways to stimulate meridian points. Ancient Japanese tradition uses precious metal needles energetically, without touching the body. In Kodaishin Meridian Therapy gold and silver needles are used without touching the skin directly. As a matter of policy, Sri Jana does not do not do anything to penetrate the skin.
Kodaishin Does Not Diagnose Disease
Rather than looking for disease, Kodaishin looks for the areas of greatest sensitivity and openness in your health. Sri Jana listens very carefully to the body using her professional knowledge and intuitive skills, to determine the highest priority to address, and stimulate a shift on the deepest level. This is much like finding a fulcrum of balance in the moment. When she finds a priority she will tell you what it is. This partnering allows you to fully participate in the shifts and take control of your healing.
Kodaishin Uses Pure Gold and Silver Needles
The material with which a needle is made is of great importance. Different metals produce different energetic effects in the body. Modern disposable acupuncture needles are made of stainless steel. More specific and refined treatments can be made with gold, silver, platinum and molybdenum. Golden needles have an energetic potential of +0.285 on the hydrogen scale and produce toning effects in body acupuncture. Gold is precious, and its power and energy can be felt. Gold needles are for reinforcing or tonifying points when Qi or Yang is deficient. Gold is warm and dilates the tissues and relaxes the injured area, allowing repair to be a little faster. When a treatment is done with gold needles it gives anti-inflammatory action upon organs connected with points on the body. Silver has a smaller potential of 0.048 and can be used for calming effects. Silver relieves or localizes inflammation. Stainless steel needles have a neutral effect.
Kodaishin Works with the Extraordinary Meridians
The eight extraordinary meridians are pathways of Qi, or energy which run deep within our bodies, and supply the twelve organ meridians with Qi and blood. They are the first meridians to appear in an embryo, and they give rise to the twelve organ meridians. The extraordinary meridians are related to our genetic heritage and our spiritual destiny. By stimulating the points on the hands and feet associated with each meridian pairing on opposite sides, the practitioner duplicates the most basic energy flow in the body called the “microcosmic orbit”. In Oriental medicine this is likened to a figure 8 or the infinity symbol. By stimulating the extraordinary meridians with gold or silver needles, deep shifts can be made which dissolve very old patterns of behavior or misunderstanding, which prevent them from moving forward with their life.
Non-Invasive Therapy Benefits All Conditions
Kodaishin Meridian Therapy is based on the study of the rhythms of life, the energies which underlie and are at the very foundation of the body functions. Rather than looking for what is wrong and trying to fix it, Kodaishin provides a true listener and gentle support. This cooperative, sacred collaboration between practitioner and client allows the body to release blockages and find balance without invasive techniques. Since this form of acupuncture has no penetration with the needles, the channel flow is regulated by holding the needle over the acupuncture point. After locating the point very precisely, the Qi is sent through the acupuncturist to balance the yin and yang of the channels. This technique is well suited for children and the needle shy, as it does not penetrate the skin. Kodaishin is a complete system of healing, and can benefit any ailment or condition including cancer, hypertension, fibromyalgia, depression, diabetes, obesity, back pain, and ADHD. It works on the deepest subtle level promoting meridian flow and clarity in the body-mind.
Kodaishin Meridian Therapy can be done in a personal consultation with Sri Jana. It may be included as a part of another single session, when it is a priority for your healing.

The Eight Extraordinary Meridians
Yang Wei Mai
- Male: TB 5 on Left, GB 41 on Right
- Female: TB 5 Right, GB 41 on Left
The Extraordinary Meridians are the deepest pathways of Qi in the body. They are the first channels to develop in your body, initiated at conception when the egg and sperm come together, they precede, give rise to, and support the 12 organ meridians according to our spiritual and genetic heritage. They provide a map for us to fulfill our potential, our destiny, the purpose of our life, and to convert Jing into Shen, energy into spirit, through the transmuting power of Qi.
The extraordinary meridians have important functions in the body and spirit.
1) They act as reservoirs of Qi and blood for the twelve organ meridians, filling and emptying as needed.
2) They circulate Jing or ‘essence’ around the body and they have a strong connection with the Kidneys.
3) They help circulate protective Wei Qi around the body and therefore play an important role in maintaining health.
4) They connect the twelve regular channels.
Du Mai – The Governing Vessel controls the Yang Meridians in the back, Wei Qi circulation, and Fire, to guard against external intruders. The Du channel represents our ability to break away from Yin/mother/bond to explore, rule our lives, our transformation, survival and groundedness in the world. It relates to becoming independent and taking risks.
Ren Mai – The Conception Vessel represents our deepest resources in life, and the gifts we received in very early childhood bonding with our mother. It rules the process of birthing, be it that of a child, a creative idea, or an endeavor. Ren involves bonding, nurturing, protection, and love of self.
Chong Mai – The Penetrating Vessel runs up the center of the body from Huiyin to Baihui. Then it continues up to the center of the galaxy and down deep into the Earth, if you wish. The Chong Mai represents the blueprint, inter-generational patterns, issues from abuse, and cellular memory. The Chong Mai represents our sense of self, how do I relate to myself, and am I comfortable with who I am?
Dai Mai – The Belt Meridian spirals around the body up and out in an energy cocoon of protective Wei Qi. If the Dai Mai is dysfunctional, the “belt” tightens and leads to stagnation, an energetic split between upper and lower body. The Dai Mai is a repository for unexpressed emotions and patterns that require transformation. Repression of these shadows leads to congestion of body/mind/spirit.
The Two Qiao Mai Channels – Heel Vessels represent how we merge Yin and Yang, and how we bridge these two extremes, to stand up to ourselves and to the world. The Qiao vessels are about short term issues of personality, judgment and morality. They’re about how we accept the roles we take on. The Qiao vessels arise from the heels, supporting agility and leg movement. They come up to the BL-1 point, the inner canthus (corner) of the eyes, affecting the pineal and pituitary glands.
BL-1 is also the activating point of Wei Qi, the first point activated on waking from sleep. Thus these channels affect how one’s eyes adjust to light, blood-sugar level, body temperature, blood pressure, hormones, etc.
Yang Qiao Mai – The Yang Heel Vessel rules how we stand up to the world, extend ourselves, interact with and experience the world. It represents the internalization of our interactions and how we express it back out to the world (eyes). Issues of over-emphasizing the world, and being angry at it are Yang Qiao issues. Psycho-spiritually this meridian is useful to treat people in a constant state of rebellion, Type-A personality activists, and those out to change the world. The more one rebels, the more sick we become. What we resist persists within us.
Yin Qiao Mai – The Yin Heel Vessel rules how we stand up to ourselves. It is about taking on roles with clear vision, understanding the vast potential of life. When the Yin Qiao Mai is open, we can express to the world who we really are. Our eyes both take in the world, and express out to the world who we are. We realize that the greatest gift we can offer is our true self. Psycho-spiritually, it may deal with self-trust, abandonment, depression, self-anger, and unworthiness.
The Two Wei Mai Vessels – Linking Vessels represent how we hold together through life cycles, aging, and time. They rule how we move along in life and transform either Yin or Yang as time passes.
Yang Wei Mai – The Yang Linking Vessel, The Yang Wei Mai regulates our old habits and patterns, and the release of pre-established modes of behavior that prevent us from evolving. It links and supports the Yang in the cycles of time. Its domain is about possibilities and becoming more rarified, so it is important in terminal disease. It represents the last stage of defense before the body is invaded by a pathogen, and can assist issues of illness and dying.
Yin Wei Mai – The Yin Linking Vessel is about our relationship to the past and the future, about the meaning that we give life, about our sense of purpose and validating our existence. Psycho-spiritually, this vessel is concerned with the meaning that we derive from life, and helps us to respond to life with clarity and compassion.
