The Ren Channel Acupuncture Meridian for Male and Female Fertility

Chris Reilly, L.Ac, MSA Tuesday, November 04, 2014

Often called the "conception vessel", the Ren Channel is an important channel for male and female fertility.

The ren channel is represented by a line drawn from the lowest point of the trunk (the perineum), up the front of the body to a point just a little below the lower lip. This channel is the gathering of all the body's nourishment to serve our deepest needs, both physical and spiritual. This includes the ability to create and sustain a pregnancy, which is why the channel is often called the "conception vessel," and is an important channel for male and female fertility.

The Sea of Qi is the sixth point of the ren channel, and is located about 1.5 inches below the belly button. Place both palms, one over the other, on top of this point as you take deep belly breaths. Place your minds eye deep within your abdomen about halfway between ren 6 and your sacrum. This technique helps to draw scattered energy and attention back to your center where it can once again become calm and focused on what matters most.
