The Luo Connecting points establish a system for ‘qi’ – life energy, and blood to be circulated throughout the entire body to nourish all tissues and the Zang-Fu organs. The term ‘zang’ refers to the organs considered to be yin in nature – lung, pericardium, heart, spleen, liver and kidney – while ‘fu’ refers to the yang organs – large intestine, triple heater, small intestine, stomach, gall bladder and bladder.
