Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in the body. As thin as a single cell layer, blood and its constituents are able to flow in between the capillary walls and out into the interstitial cells. This happens all over the body and is how each individual cell receives oxygenated blood.

Capillaries are integral tissues within almost every other tissue. They routinely appear in advanced Fu Xi Wen pulse diagnosis as important tissues to treat in order to heal from just about every clinical illness. V.0° relates to capillaries at the deepest part of the tissue and V.+85° relates to capillaries closest to the surface. Cold constricts the capillaries, effectively closing them. When this happens, blood cannot reach every cell and degeneration and disease ensues. Likewise, heat opens the capillaries and allows too much blood to get through. Hot flashes, for instance, are caused when constricted major arteries push blood through the smaller arteries and forcefully through the capillaries. When the capillaries at the surface are pushed open in this way, sensations of heat are felt throughout the affected area. In this case, cold in the major arteries leads to heat elsewhere.

Closely Interrelated Tissues

Arteries feed the capillaries and the capillaries feed the veins. Problems in any blood vessel can therefore cause problems in the capillaries. Capillaries are extremely prominent in the small intestine. This is one way that Fire (capillaries in this case) generates Earth (the digestive system). The heart muscle must be strong enough to push the blood through the arteries to the veins. In the case of cold sensations or weakness anywhere in the body, the heart may be too weak to fill the capillaries. Also, hormones strongly affect blood flow and may be involved in any blood flow abnormality.

Notes From Ethan's Clinic

Just about every person I see in the clinic eventually reveals some sort of imbalance in the capillaries. While small, capillaries deserve huge amounts of attention and, yes I'm going to say it: love.
