The Triple Warmer Meridian Route

Triple Warmer Meridian Flow -

The Triple Warmer Meridian originates from the tip of the ring finger, by the outside corner of the nail, passes between the knuckles of the fourth and fifth fingers, on to the wrist.

From here it ascends between the two bones of the forearm (radius and ulna), through the tip of the elbow, and up the back of the arm to the shoulder.

It moves forward into the chest to connect with the pericardium, the upper burner, the abdomen and the middle and lower burners. Re-emerging from the chest at the collarbone, the meridian ascends the side of the neck and around the back of the ear.

Meridian Charts

This meridian is responsible for the movement and transformation of various solids and fluids throughout the system, as well as for the production and circulation of nourishing and protective energy.

It is a functional energy system, involved in regulating the activities of other organs, composed of three parts, known as 'burners', located in thorax, abdomen, and pelvis.

The Upper Burner controls intake, the Middle Burner controls transformation, the Lower Burner controls elimination.

One branch rises internally to meet the gallbladder meridian on the forehead, then descends to join the small intestine meridian on the cheek.

The superficial branch continues to the front of the ear and crosses to the outer corner of the eyebrow, where it again joins the gallbladder meridian.
