The Organ Clock (Biological Wheel)

The Organ Clock comes from traditional Chinese medicine. As you know there are natural biological cycles, for instance: the year, the moon and the day. All activity in nature changes according to a certain pattern. The Organ Wheel is based on the fact that our inner organs each have a time during the day when they are more active. This knowledge can be used to diagnose and help treatment.

Organ activity will indicate the correct treatment
Every one of our 12 most important organs have a two hour period during the day when they are the most active. If the energy in the organ is out of balance, symptoms will be more noticeable during the organ's two-hour period. Please observe that symptoms can also show in body tissue, sensory organs, meridians or muscles whose function is connected to the organ. Many patients will be able to accurately inform you about the time that they feel their problems are most severe. This information and the Organ Clock can help you to give the correct treatment and to balance the problem.

Organs in opposing time frames affect each other
According to Chinese medicine, organs that are directly 12 hours apart from each other have an influence on the balance in the opposing organ. You might get an indication that the patient feels worse twice per day. The explanation is that when two different organs (and their corresponding tissue, sensory organs, meridians, muscles etc.) are sick at the same time it is usually because one organ has too much energy, whilst the other lacks in energy. (Worth noting is that if you treat the organ lacking energy it will "suck" energy from the organ with too much energy, creating balance again.)
As a rule of thumb you can use this:
Too much energy: the illness or problem occurs and gets bigger both when the body is at rest and in physical activity.
Lack of energy: the illness or problem only occurs or gets bigger during physical activity.

How to use the Organ Clock
To use it is very simple. Find out at what time the problem is most severe, treat the corresponding organ/organs with Reiki. This is how you read the clock: The outer squares give you some possible symptoms. The first ring of the actual clock contains the organs and the two hour time frame. Next ring will give you the name of the corresponding meridian. The black circles give you the element from the Chinese five element principles (I will not describe those here). The inner ring contains an important acupuncture point for the corresponding meridian and that time frame. You can treat the organ directly or this point with Reiki and get very good results. You will find the points described, in layman's terms, in the table below the Organ Clock.

Remember, never give a diagnosis to the client, leave that to a medical doctor. Use the Organ Clock as a guide in helping the client get well!
