These pathways of qi running throughout the body are known as channels or meridians. Each channel is linked with a particular organ and is responsible for many functions in our bodies, minds and spirits. The channels can be compared to the major blood vessels in the sense that they constitute the main ‘arteries’ of qi in the body. But just as tiny capillaries carry blood to every cell in the body, so also there are tiny channels to transport qi to every cell. Without qi and blood a cell will die.
