What are the eight extra vessels?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the concept of meridians refers to channels or pathways through which Qi, vital energy, flows. The eight extra vessels are considered additional to the twelve regular meridians. They play significant roles in regulating the flow of Qi and maintaining overall health. Here are the eight extra vessels:

  1. Du Mai (Governing Vessel): This vessel runs along the midline of the body, starting from the perineum, up the spine, over the head, and ending at the upper lip. It is associated with Yang energy and is often used to regulate the body’s yang functions.
  2. Ren Mai (Conception Vessel): Like the Du Mai, this vessel also runs along the midline but on the front side of the body. It starts at the perineum, goes up the abdomen, chest, and throat, and ends at the lower lip. The Ren Mai is associated with Yin energy and is involved in regulating yin functions.
  3. Chong Mai (Penetrating Vessel): This vessel is said to be the sea of all the meridians and connects all twelve regular meridians. It is believed to regulate the flow of Qi and blood in the body.
  4. Dai Mai (Belt Vessel): This vessel encircles the waist like a belt, connecting the Gallbladder and Triple Burner meridians. It is thought to regulate the flow of Qi in the lower abdomen and pelvis and is often involved in conditions related to these areas.
  5. Yin Wei Mai (Yin Linking Vessel): This vessel connects the Yin meridians (Kidney, Spleen, Heart, Pericardium, and Liver) and is associated with nourishing Yin energy in the body.
  6. Yang Wei Mai (Yang Linking Vessel): Similar to the Yin Wei Mai, this vessel connects the Yang meridians (Bladder, Stomach, Small Intestine, Large Intestine, and Gallbladder) and is associated with regulating Yang energy.
  7. Yin Qiao Mai (Yin Motility Vessel): This vessel is associated with the regulation of yin energy, particularly in the lower body, and is involved in conditions related to the legs, feet, and lower abdomen.
  8. Yang Qiao Mai (Yang Motility Vessel): Similar to the Yin Qiao Mai, this vessel regulates yang energy, particularly in the lower body, and is involved in conditions affecting the legs, feet, and lower abdomen.

These eight extra vessels are considered important in TCM theory and are often utilized in acupuncture and other TCM modalities for treating various health issues and promoting overall well-being.
