The zang fu organs in Chinese medicine are said to be interconnected by means of the channel system. This organisation gives rise to physiologically significant pairs of organs that can be considered for treatment in the clinic. Of these, internal-external pairs and same-name pairs are frequently discussed. A third type of organ pair exists which receives less attention, though is no less important: the same-movement pairs. This paper describes and expounds upon the same-movement organ pairs and discusses how to apply this concept in the clinic.
