In TCM, its essential function is to tonify blood and qi and harmonize the shen. There are several points and meridians that it works well with because of its flexibility.

My body, physiologically and emotionally begins moving towards balance, accompanied by a strength and lightness. It is both uplifting and grounding to me.
