The governor vessel moves from bottom of body to top in the back and regulates the body’s yang qi. The conception vessel moves from top of body to bottom in front and regulates the yin qi. These two vessels help to regular the 12 meridians too. If these two vessels are flowing well, the body will also be in a healthy state.
There are two ways to keep the conception and governor vessels healthy, one is through the top of the mouth. There is a meeting point in the mouth. Take your tongue and place it about 1cm behind the two front teeth. As your saliva forms, swallow it to nourish your organs.
Another way is to lift the anus as both vessels originate near the anus. If you exercise the anus daily, it helps qi and blood circulation. You can relax and tighten your anus as if you are holding your bowel movement. You can do this while you are sitting or standing for a few minutes each day. This helps to improve anal or intestinal illnesses, hemorrhoids, urinary incontinence, and postpartum looseness.
