Qigong accupressure and the 3 yin-yang symbols

The 3 ying-yang symbols represent the concept used in old dialectic chinese philosophy in order to explain objetively the universe phenomena, events and nature, these are entities which are marked by its constant and dinamic transformation, and keeping balance between opposites.

As it is pointed out in the graph, the symbol on the top, an entirely yang cicle, represents the sky; the symbol at the bottom, an entirely yin circle represents the earth, and the central circle (half yin and half yang) represents the human being.
In accupressure Qigong therapy, the superior, inferior and central circles correspond to superior, inferior and central Dantian respectively of the human body. The Qi used in accupressure Qigong therapy is activated and modulates in these 3 Dantian points, and is then transferred to the hands.
