Meridians are the energy pathways inside our body. Meridians(also called as Jingluo) are Jing and Luo. Jing are meridians, they run longitudinally along the body, Luo are networks, they are the branches and sub branches. Since Jing are mostly discussed for general information, as a convenient term, we use meridians when we talk about Jingluo.

There are twelve main meridians (Jing). Each one belongs to one of the organs as their names indicated. They are: the heart, pericardium, lungs, stomach, spleen, kidneys, liver, large intestine, small intestine, bladder, gall bladder, and SanJiao. In Chinese medicine, Sanjiao is the container for all the organs. The names of them are very significant. Each contains four pieces of information: where, the nature (Yin or Yang), how much Yin or Yang, and which organ each belongs to. The twelve main meridians exist in pairs, symmetric about the centerline of the body. They are:


1. lung meridian

2. large intestine meridian

3. stomach meridian

4. spleen meridian

5. heart meridian

6. small intestine meridian

7. bladder meridian

8. kidney meridian

9. pericardium meridian

10. triple warmer meridian

11. gallbladder meridian

12. liver meridian

13. Conception vessel

14. Governor vessel

(13 and 14 are extraordinary meridians as introduced below)

The conception vessel and governor vessel locates in the center of the body. Their play an important role in regulating the energy flows so they are grouped with the other 12 main meridians and called the 14 main meridians.

Each meridian of the 12 main meridians has two hours of the most active time every day (not include conception vessel and governor vessel).
