Conception Vessel Meridian

The Conception vessel, or meridian, plays a major role in Qi circulation, monitoring and directing all of the Yin channels.

It forms a circular entity with the Governing Vessel.

In Qigong society, the Conception Vessel and the Governing Vessel are considered the most important among the Qi channels and vessels, and must be trained first.

Whereas the Governing meridian runs from the tailbone upwards along the mid-line of the back through the vertebrae to the head, this Meridian runs up the anterior (front) of the body, from the pubic area to the mouth.

Governing Vessel Meridian

The Governing and Conception Vessels are two branches of the same source, and inseparable Yin-and-Yang, front-and-back duality.

These vessels connect the uterus with the kidneys, heart, and brain.

Along these vessels, the Yang Fire and Yin Essence flow up and down the body, fusing the Water and Fire energies together (Five Elements Healing).

This fusion facilitates a Yin and Yang balance throughout the body.
