The three phases of the night also correspond spatially to the three channels, which constitute the three segments of yin or yang: ● The first phase of the night corresponds to tai yin. The person will present with restlessness and maybe snoring or other visceral manifestations. The disharmony responsible for these symptoms can be found in the tai yin (lung and spleen) systems, such as spleen qi vacuity, lung heat, stomach heat, and so on. ● The middle phase of the night corresponds to the jue yin (liver and pericardium) channels.

Three other luo help bring back the wei qi to the yuan, the spleen great luo and the luo of the ren mai (conception vessel) and du mai (governing vessel). As the luo are heavily involved with the blood and shen, they act as a buffer system and manage our emotional responses to the world. The involvement of the luo during the night gives us the opportunity to review the psycho-emotional impacts of our daily life in the form of dreams manifesting as challenges, prompting us to find Sleep is defined as a regularly recurring condition of rest for the body and mind.

A disturbance of yin, for example yin vacuity, suggests either a weakness of the yin wei vessel or the yin qiao vessel, or an excess of the opposite yang wei or yang qiao vessels. Thus, when assessing sleep disorders, it is also important to consider the complementary yang vessels. It may be presumed that “time” is organized by the yin qiao and the yang qiao vessels, and that “space” is managed by the yin wei and yang wei vessels. Therefore, it can be assumed that sleep, being a yin phenomenon, is synchronized in its temporal structure by the yin qiao vessel and in its depth and intensity by yin wei vessel.
