Relations Between the Channels Inside–Outside Relation An inside–outside relation exists between the yin channels and yang channels that refers both to the anatomical location of the channels and to the associated paired viscera and bowels. The bladder channel, for example, runs along the posterior outside of the hind-leg in the yang area, while the paired kidney channel is located on the posterior inside of the hindleg roughly across from it in the yin area.

The yin divergent channels of the yin channels: depart from the main channels at the extremities; partly enter the associated viscus; run together with the paired yang divergent channels; then connect to the paired yang main channel itself. The pathways of the divergent channels and their connections between the main channels and the organs or certain body regions explains the effect of several acupuncture points located on the main channels, which otherwise would not have any connection there.
