Traditional theory holds that each of the Zang Organs plays a role in emotions. The Heart Zang is said to store the Shen or spirit, which includes emotional responses to stimuli. For example, the Spleen Zang is associated with excessive worry; the Liver with anger; the Kidney with fear and fright; and the Lung with grief, the inability to let go, and anxiety. When there is a disturbance in one or more of the Zang Organs, from any cause, an imbalanced emotional state can occur. Likewise, an imbalanced emotional state can cause a Zang disturbance. In all cases, however, the Shen is disturbed.
