This is all part of Chinese medicine and its theory, especially channel theory.
The above symptoms of the three heater luo bequeathed by antiquity are short. That’s because they were just giving examples of the kind of most obvious symptom.
They don’t tell you enough, mostly, to be sure of the diagnosis.
For example, a lack of tone in the arm muscles will probably be Emptiness in this luo channel, but it could be due to Spleen and Stomach Qi and Blood deficiency.
This would manifest not just in the arms muscles but in muscles elsewhere in the body.
As regards the Qi Stagnation, probably the symptoms would worsen with emotional stress. This would help confirm the diagnosis and suggest ways to help the patient.
As with all luo channels, injuries along the Three Heater luo channel, such as with distended veins or signs of trauma, show that the channel is affected.
In this case, the channel’s luo point, Three Heater 5, should be added to other forms of treatment.
