The Luo is a system of vessels in Chinese medicine where external and internal pathological influences are diverted from the main meridians until the individual can deal with them or the body can no longer sustain its storage.
Treating these vessels can help resolve physical as well as emotional issues, releasing the emotion from the area of the body where it’s held. Luo’s are the equivalent of a door that can be opened to allow the energy of thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that don’t belong to our true nature to be exteriorized.
The acupuncture points belonging to these vessels can also increase consciousness by calming the mind and allowing access to deeper aspects of the self where exterior occurrences can be integrated with original nature.
