Now, when an acupuncturist talks about an organ, they aren’t talking about just the physical organ sitting in your abdomen, but an energetic system in your body tasked with certain physiological, mental, and psycho-spiritual functions. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver is related to the wood element, which is the energy of springtime. Think of the universal energy present in the spring - new buds bursting forth, new life beginning, new sprouts pushing their way through the soil and up towards the sun. This is the energy of the liver, and it is at play in our bodies as much as it is found in the world outside.
