Chinese Meridian Restorative – Metal Lung

Metal governs the mind and organization, order, communication, limits, and boundaries. Nature’s cycle of letting go has inward movement, returning to origin and source; the earth. Lung is the “tender organ” living in the upper body, and is especially susceptible to wind and cold. It is the commander of Chi, because it is in charge of inhalation and exhalation; the movement of in and out.

Lungs are the body’s “skin", allowing the process of taking in and letting go. If a person cannot "let go", life doesn’t flow smoothly, so this is a good time to heal grief and sadness.

Breathing controls the nervous system, regulates and governs our energy and pulse. It is a bridge between body and mind and helps to keep the two in balance. Healthy Lungs are crucial for strong body and mind, so breathe deeply with gratitude and celebration, and pay attention to Lung health.

We work with the energy of Metal and what it means to us emotionally, physically and spiritually. Working with gentle folding and side opening, we focus on the front and back of the organ body, and unfurl slowly and patiently.
