TCM Meridians Lesson 2 The Four Heart-Related Channels
TCM Meridians 4 Heart-Related Channels. It’s important to note that TCM views health and wellness from a holistic perspective, considering the interplay of various organ systems, meridians, and the balance of Qi within the body. When addressing health concerns, TCM practitioners take into account not only the individual meridians but also other meridians and the overall state of the patient’s Qi.
The Heart Meridian is one of the twelve main meridians in TCM, and it is associated with the Heart organ system.
The Pericardium Meridian, also known as the Pericardium Channel or simply the PC Meridian, is one of the twelve primary meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is closely associated with the Pericardium organ system, which in TCM serves a broader function than the anatomical pericardium in Western medicine.
The Small Intestine Meridian is one of the twelve primary meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is responsible for the flow of Qi (vital energy) and plays a vital role in the digestive system.
The San Jiao Meridian, also known as the San Jiao Channel or Triple Burner Meridian, is one of the twelve primary meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The San Jiao refers to the “Triple Burner” or “Triple Heater,” which is not a physical organ but rather a functional concept in TCM that relates to the regulation of body temperature and the distribution of fluids in the body.
