Major treatments include the human body meridian or channel system, the five phases, Yin- yang, six confirmations, fours levels, Zang Fu organ theory and others.
With respect to oriental medicine theory, a human is considered as a small universe comprising of a complex system of many subsystems of matter and energy. These systems work together to maintain a healthy human body and mind. The nature of operation of these subsystems are described in terms of meridian channels, different types of energy levels, body fluids, pathogenic factors, vessels, deficiency or excess, hot or cold, dampness, wind and five elements.

A human body consists of invisible pathways, which help in circulating blood and link a person to cosmic influences or forces. They also protect the body against external causes of diseases and regulate the energy balance in the body.
