The Liver channel describes where your Liver acupuncture meridian runs. Many parts of its pathway are reached via Liver acupuncture points, but in other places the channel runs deep inside your body and is affected by points on other channels.
If you are more interested in how in Chinese medicine the Liver functions click on Liver syndromes.
The pathway shown by acupuncture points in green in the picture on the right is only half the picture. Like all acupuncture channels, the Liver channel also has internal branches.
The Primary channel of the Liver is bilateral and
The Liver luo-connecting channel commences from Liver 5 on the lower leg, connects to the Gallbladder channel and ascends to the genitals.
The Liver Divergent channel starts from the area of Liver 1 on the big toe and ascends to the pubic area, there converging with the Gall Bladder primary channel.
From this you can see that the Liver channel has connections with various organs, including the gallbladder, liver, lungs and stomach, and directly connects with the low abdomen, costal and hypochondriac region, vertex, eyes, cheeks, back of the throat, inside lips of the mouth, and genitals.
Any of these organs or areas of the body may be affected when Liver qi or Liver Blood is out of balance.For points along the Liver channel, click below:

Please note! The Kindle editions are less easy to read!
I'm gradually improving this, but 'Qi Stagnation' and 'Yin Deficiency' still remain to be re-edited.
Although the paper editions cost more, they are much easier to read and to refer back and forth to the contents and index.
Here are some of the books Jonathan has written:
Still only one comment, though personally I think this is my best book so far.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
No comments yet: just published. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
