Continuing the discussion of the human energetic anatomy that forms the basis of ancient Chinese medicine and acupuncture, this chapter describes the energetic networks (Jing Luo) known as meridians. To make a diagnosis using the Jing Luo, this chapter describes in detail those abnormalities that can happen that affect the function of 12 principal channels (Zheng Jing) and 8 extra channels (Qi Jing Ba Mai) and cause clinical symptoms such as pain in an area with a blocked flow of energy and dysfunction of the organs that depend on the integrity of their energy channels. These abnormalities resemble the manifestation of internal organ dysfunction described in Chapter 7.
