Esperanto to English translations [PRO] Medical / oriental medicine
Esperanto term or phrase:sojangino
This word is related to oriental medicine and refers to a body classification.
Explanation: 1- The small intestine, say OMDs, are connected to the neck and shoulders via a meridian - a pathway in the body along which life energy, or "chi," flows - Koreans call "sojang-gyong." When the small intestine is damaged or weak, the related meridians are unable to carry chi correctly, and this results in stiffness or pain in areas along the meridian.
2-"Sojang-Dong" and "Sojang-Gol" are two cities in Korea.
As the suffix -ino is used for feminine nouns in Esperanto, there might be other meanings. To make sure, ask what the word "sojang" means in Kudoz Korean language section.
