This page is a bit abstruse if you’re a beginner. It’s not that the words are any, or at least, much, more difficult than on other pages, but this is about a subject usually taught some way into acupuncture courses.

Actually, I did this page, and other luo-connecting channel pages, for me.
It means I can look up both the channel and its symptoms on my smartphone in case I forget them.
