Location: Three cun superior to the lateral malleolus, in a depression, between the borders of the fibula and the achilles tendon.
Location Note: Three cun above the Bladder 60 Acupuncture Point. Can be measured by using one hand-breath above the lateral malleolus
Shudo Denmei Location Note:
Slide a fingertip proximally along the margin of the fibula from Bladder 60. There will be a puffy place. Press the posterior aspect of the fibula with the tip of the thumb to locate a tender point. When there is no reaction, try palpating closer to the Achilles tendon.
According to Denmei, the puffiness is a sign of pathogenic influence and that the acupuncture point is active.
Point Indications: Use for back pain or sciatica
