As you can see from the diagram above, different areas of the tongue relate to different organ imbalances.
The Base of the tongue corresponds to the Kidney, Urinary Bladder, Large Intestine and Small Intestine Meridians.

The Middle of the tongue corresponds to the Stomach and Spleen Meridians.
The Tip of the tongue corresponds to the Lung and the Heart Meridians.
