Why Do I Love The Chong Mai So Much?
As you know, the Chong Mai is one of the Extraordinary Vessels aka 8 Extras. The Chong Mai is also called Thoroughfare Vessel, Sea of Blood, Sea of Qi, Sea of Reproduction, and Sea of the 12 Main Meridians. The Master point is Sp4 and the coupled point is Pc6.
Here’s what Dr. Lucas loves about the Chong: “One reason why I love to use Chong Mai so much is because of its effectiveness for treating mental/emotional issues. I think it is still true that most people think of acupuncture for pain, not for internal medicine issues or emotional issues. But the medicine is so beautiful for creating balance so that people can live a calmer, happier, more full life so I do my best to educate people to let them know how effective Chinese medicine is for treating mental/emotional issues.
So when I am treating any range of emotional conditions, I am certain to put the Chong Mai into the treatment somewhere. #2 what I love about it is the picture that I can paint for patients about how the channel helps them. I tell them that the channel arises from the fire in their belly and moves up their abdomen to their heart area/chakra/center where it encircles and nourishes their heart. It basically looks like a lollipop. People love – and can visualize – that sort of healing image.
Naturally, I also use it for PMS and other menstrual issues, reproductive challenges, and digestive issues but especially like to use it in my work with trauma release and other emotional issues. How often do you use the Chong?”
