In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the concept of “Water” as one of the Five Elements, also known as Wu Xing. Each element — Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water—carries a set of attributes, qualities, associations, and functions that provide a framework for understanding the balance and harmony of the body, mind, and nature. Water, the giver of life, is a foundational element with significant symbolic and physiological meanings in TCM.
As a foundational element, the Water element is closely tied to the Kidneys, the bladder and ears. In TCM, the Kidneys are considered the “Root of Life” and are responsible for storing the body’s vital essence or “Jing.” They play a key role in regulating water balance, supporting bone health (wood), and influencing the body’s energy (chi). In TCM, the kidneys (Water) are linked to emotions related to fear and willpower. It is connected to the darkness of the Winter months a time where we seek refuge and comfort.
An imbalance in the water chi can lead to excessive fear and anxiety – even great difficulty adapting to change. If your water chi is lacking, then you may also feel uninspired, lack direction and feel isolated.
