Do we need to know the dermatome referral patterns to utilize Meridian Massage?

You do not need to know the dermatome referral patterns in order to use meridian points. However, you do need to know the meridian pathways and point locations.

By knowing the meridian pathways (which are very precise) you will be able to assess which meridians are indicated based on the location of pain. Then, by palpating the points and communicating with your client about which points/meridians elicit symptoms, you will gain further insight into which points are important for each individual.
