The liver is the sister of the gallbladder.

The liver has many functions in TCM.

It is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and blood throughout the body. In Chinese medicine, illness or disease happens because of a blockage of the flow of the Qi

It controls the volume of blood and it also stores it. It cleans the blood and so it is detoxifying it

The liver is associated with new growth and expansive energies, so the spring is the best time to support the liver and being mindful to express our emotions.

The element linked to the liver is wood, which is associated with flexibilityand the ability to switch, to make choices, growth and discover

In TCM every organ vibrates with the frequency of a color;  the color of the liver is green.

The emotion of the liver is the anger, it shows on the shoulders, while frustration shows on the lower back.

I like to talk about the black and the white anger, the first one being the extrovertone, and the white one the emotion you keep
inside and dont show, but the most destructive for the body.

The best way to solve a stubborn anger is trough strong, fast movements. In my experience Its very difficult to change this emotion with slow movements.
