A Chinese Medicine Student Asked: How does the Liver ‘move’ and how does this affect us?
This statement comes from Chinese Medicine theory. The Liver is responsible for spreading Qi around the body. This keeps everything in the body moving: energy, blood, food, and emotions. When these things get stuck it leads to physical and emotional pain. The Liver is said to “move us” which ensures that we are moving forward on our life path. When the Liver is weak, we feel stuck in life and suffer emotional depression due to lack of movement.
