Sample text

At night, blood moves back inside to be stored in the liver, and the hun soul also returns inward, although it is occasionally liberated to wander, which explains the phenomenon of dreaming (see Chapter 5). Xue, Shen, and Hun The function of the blood is to nourish and to moisten. The absence of this moistening process results in dryness of the organs and a condition called zang zao (visceral agitation). When zang zao affects the mind, mental conditions such as panic attacks, paranoia, and phobias occur.

The yin wei and the shao yin channels (kidney and heart) should be treated, for example nei guan PC-6 with gong sun SP-4 and fu liu KI-7, and yin xi HT-6 with shen men HT-7 and another of the shao yin points suggested above. Where there is no underlying zang fu pathology and the sleep disorder is caused by a recent disturbance of the synchronizing extraordinary vessel alone, as witnessed in jet lag or in shiftworkers, we usually find that only one of the four extraordinary vessels will show a disturbance, most often the yin qiao vessel.

The depth of the initial phase of sleep corresponds to the tai yin segment, and the middle phase of sleep corresponds to the jue yin segment.
