In this video, licensed acupuncturist and Chinese medicine physician, Dr. Alex Heyne explains how, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), each of our ‘solid’ organs is associated with a specific emotion.
Within this healing framework, therefore, pathological emotional states can offer many clues about underlying conditions.
The negative emotions associated with the five key organs in TCM are as follows:

- The liver – anger
