"The twelve channels flow to all directions but finally converge into the four seas (east, west, south, north).
In the human body: the sea of marrow, the sea of blood, the sea of qi and the sea of water and grain.
The viability of the four seas is enhanced in the human body when one treats in a way that corresponds with the laws of nature."
