TCM Meridians Lesson 3 The Kidney and Bladder Channels

TCM Meridians Lesson 3 The Kidney and Bladder Channels. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the kidney and bladder meridians are two of the twelve primary meridians that, through which vital energy, known as “Qi” (pronounced chee), flows throughout the body. These meridians are central to the TCM system, and their proper functioning is considered essential for maintaining overall health and balance.

Bladder Meridian (Pang Guang Meridian):
Location: The bladder meridian is one of the six yang meridians and runs along the back of the body. It begins at the inner corner of the eye, travels up over the head, and then descends along the back, branching out on both sides of the spine.
Functions: The bladder meridian is associated with the bladder organ. It plays a role in the excretion of waste and regulating the body’s water balance. It also influences the nervous system, as it runs closely along the spine. In TCM, the bladder meridian is often used for treating conditions related to the lower back, such as pain and stiffness.

Kidney Meridian (Shen Meridian):
Location: The kidney meridian is one of the six yin meridians and runs along the inner leg. It begins at the underside of the foot and travels up the inside of the leg, through the groin, and continues up the front of the body to the chest, where it connects with the kidney organ.
Functions: The kidney meridian is associated with the kidney organ and is responsible for storing the body’s congenital essence, which includes genetic and constitutional aspects. It governs growth, development, and reproductive functions. It is also associated with water metabolism, bone health, and the body’s ability to withstand stress and aging. It also supports hearing, healthy knees, and a pain-free lumbar region.

Both the kidney and bladder meridians are involved in the flow of Qi and play a significant role in the balance and regulation of various bodily functions. When there are imbalances or blockages in these meridians, it is believed to lead to various health issues.
