TCM Heart Wisdom

Posted by Tira Mills

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the heart is not just an organ but a hub of vitality.

Seat of the Shen (Spirit):

In TCM, the heart is considered the emperor of the body, housing the Shen or spirit. It’s the seat of consciousness, emotions, and the radiant spark that animates our being. Nourishing the heart is akin to nurturing our innermost selves.

Circulatory Harmony:

TCM sees the heart as the orchestrator of smooth energy and blood circulation, promoting vibrant health. Linked with vessels, the heart influences both physical circulation and the flow of energy and emotions.

Emotional Equilibrium:

TCM recognizes the intimate connection between the heart and emotions. Joy is the emotion associated with the heart, and an imbalance may manifest as excess joy or, conversely, lack of joy. Acupuncture and TCM aim to restore emotional equilibrium for overall well-being.

Acupuncture Harmony:

Through acupuncture, we aim to promote balance within the heart and the entire body. Acupuncture points associated with the heart play a vital role in restoring harmony and enhancing overall well-being.
