When we experience emotions, it immediately contacts our nervous system. Several events in the body are set in motion. At first, our liver who nourish the nervous system, will be called upon to increase the amount of blood to circulate, to meet this demand. The increase of tension in the nervous system needs to be released. This can be done through verbal expression, physical activity etc. This will restore homeostasis. The heart and lungs will be involved too. (Heart through speech and circulation and lungs through receiving qi if physical activity is done).
What happen if we don't discharge and rebalance?
Many things. To start with, this:
Hyperactivity in our nervous system is not released, and the liver will need to keep adding nourishment. The musculoskeletal system is unable to respond to the call for release. Tension will be held, and require more nourishment. Both systems will cause the liver to empty its stored blood. Liver is left to fight for its own recovery. Noxious energy is created. Many parts of the body will now be affected, and an inhibition of the flow of qi (energy) will create stagnation and pain. And it doesn't end here, but I have no more space to write.
