what are the 3 functions of channels?
1. transport qi & blood, and regulating yin & yang
2. resisting pathogens, and reflecting symptoms and signs
3. transmitting needling sensation and regulating deficiency
arise from a specific pt located below the elbow or knee and separate from the regular channels
luo connecting channels
possibly even deeper than jing-mai (regular channels)
do not distribute interiorly, only superficially at the skin. they have no starting pt of terminating pts, no directional flow
start on extremities (hand or feet) and travel inward toward the trunk. They cover broad areas and "knot" at the joints and large muscles
separate from the channels above or at the elbow or knee joints, enter the chest and abdomen, emerge from the body cavity (usually at the head or neck) converge with the yang channel of the pair (at the head)
run vertically, bilaterally, and symmetrically distributed relatively deep within the body, have internal and external pathways
