In TCM diagnostics, san jiao (three burners / triple warmer) refers to the internal parts of chest and abdomen area.

  1. Upper burner (shang jiao): above the diaphragm area, which includes lungs, heart, windpipes and bronchii.

  2. Middle burner (zhong jiao): from diaphragm to the navel area, which includes liver, gall bladder, spleen, and stomach.

  3. Lower burner (xia jiao): from navel below, in the abdomen area, which includes large and small intestines, bladder, kidney, uterus and ovaries.

This does not refer to san jiao channel (meridian), which is also called san jiao.
