Example text

The term “depth” is defined as the position of the channel in relation to wei/nei (outer/inner), where yang is exterior, and yin interior (Fig. 17). Tai yang is the outermost channel, which is in contact with the world; then comes shao yang, and then the deepest yang, yang ming. Tai yang is more yang than yang ming, and therefore closer to the outside (wei). The yin channels are energetically closer to the inside (nei). This organization in space is clearly demonstrated in the disposition of the 12 primary channels in the body, where the most yang zones will be tai yang, followed by shao yang, then yang ming, then tai yin (the yin closest to the outside), followed by jue yin, and then shao yin, the deepest yin in the body.

At all times yang activity must be balanced by yin rest. Organization of Yang Four of the extraordinary vessels are responsible for all yang activities, spaces, and phenomena (Fig. 11): ● Du mai, the Sea of Yang, recapitulates all yang activities. ● Yang wei mai, the Preserver or Binder of Yang, maintains the balance between inside and outside, and controls wei qi on the surface. ● Yang qiao mai accelerates yang. ● Dai mai maintains the distribution of yang and regulates the upper and the lower parts of the body.
