Example text

In any event, sleep is not restful for the body or for the mind. The quality or depth of yin is regulated by the yin wei (yin binding) vessel and its complementary yang wei (yang binding) vessel. The three phases of the night also correspond spatially to the three channels, which constitute the three segments of yin or yang: ● The first phase of the night corresponds to tai yin. The person will present with restlessness and maybe snoring or other visceral manifestations. The disharmony responsible for these symptoms can be found in the tai yin (lung and spleen) systems, such as spleen qi vacuity, lung heat, stomach heat, and so on.

Yuen (lecture 2009, personal communication) defines wei qi and this process more precisely. According to Master Yuen, wei qi, being part of yang qi, is rooted in the yuan qi (source qi) and needs to return to the source, the kidneys. If the wei qi cannot fully complete its return to the source—the kidneys—the patient will experience fear in the form of nightmares, and in the case of infants, even convulsions, called jing feng, or fright wind. Master Yuen further says that wei qi also penetrates deeper during the sleep state to protect us against gui (ghost) influences.

If this inward movement of wei qi and of xue is disturbed, it can result in an accumulation of wei qi and blood in the muscles. This causes initialstage insomnia with zao, which manifests as mus- cle tension, cramping, or the typical RLS. Points such as qu quan LR-8, yang ling quan GB-34, and yang jiao GB-35, xi–cleft of yang wei mai are indicated to relax the sinews and help with the inward movement of blood. Xue can also move out during sleep, causing the hun (ethereal soul) to become unsettled and to wander.
