The Channel then traverses the abdomen obliquely to Zhangmen LIV-13, at the end of the 11th rib and to Qimen LIV-14, 2 ribs below nipples. The pathway leaves the surface and goes inside the body from the LIV-13.
The internal pathway:
The internal pathway curves around the Stomach and arrives at the Liver and the Gallbladder. The latter two are the Channel's pertaining Zang and FuOrgans.
From there it continues to ascend, passing through the diaphragm, branching out in the coastal and hypochondriac region and passing Tianchi P-1 and Zhongfu LU-1.
Then it ascends along the neck and the posterior aspect of the throat to the nasopharynx. It connects with the tissues surrounding the eye (the 'eye system').
