Zangfu (Organ) and Chakra Considerations

We layer with discussion of Midline and Governor vessel with kidney and bladder zangfu (organ) and channel (meridian) in relation to midline and spinal nerve correlations.


We look at the esoteric pairing of acupuncture points as location markers for the 7 main chakras as we work with the spine.
