Published on Locomotor system.

Thighs are part of the body’s lower limbs. The lower limbs play a vital role in the locomotor system. They allow us to walk, run, jump, push, change direction in the way we move. They allow us to stand up, as well as conferring mobility, flexibility and activity, but also firmness.

Tensions in the lower limbs mean tensions with the world or with people. As we progress down from the thigh to the foot, energy becomes diversified. The femur is the largest bone in the human body and is located in the thigh. The bone structure represents our deepest rooted beliefs.

Problems in the thigh may take place in the muscle, bone (femur) or in the skin. If it happens in the muscle, it denotes undervaluing and inflexibility. On the skin, it shows difficulty in communicating, or tension provoked by separation.

To fracture the femur is a serious impediment for anyone. The body is saying: “Stop, take a different route.”

Problems in the thighs indicate undervaluing due to inflexibility in the person’s way of thinking regarding his own life, his foundations, roots, deepest beliefs, work, home, family, money. The person’s decisiveness has been totally shaken.

The right thigh, at the onset, is yang, masculine, and the left is yin, feminine, both in the case of left and right-handed people. We are talking about the locomotor system. But we must remember that the yin/yang polarity regarding the sides of the body is not obvious in this system.

Therefore, problems affecting the yang thigh unveil obstinacy concerning the way one leads his life and thinking, mostly regarding work and professional projects, and the likely (harmful) influence of a man’s way of thinking (perhaps the Father or the male model at home or in the couple). Problems in the yin thigh disclose obstinacy concerning the way one leads his life and thinking, mostly regarding home and the family, and the likely (harmful) influence of a woman’s way of thinking (perhaps the Mother or the female model at home or in the couple). In both cases, the person’s firmness has been questioned.
