Example text

Thus for example, Qimen LIV-14, the front-mu point of the Liver, is important for the treatment of Liver patterns, Juque REN-14 the front-mu point of the Heart for Heart patterns etc.

The term 'mu' means to gather or to collect, and the frontmu points are where the qi of the zangfu gathers and concentrates on the anterior surface of the body. There are few early classical references to these points. The Essential Questions for example says: "When a person is frequently indecisive, the Gall Bladder is deficient. The qi will flow upwards giving rise to a bitter taste in the mouth. To treat this use the front-mu and the back-shu of the Gall Bladder". The Classic of DificultiesZ5says: "The mu of the five zang are located at the yin [aspect], whilst the shu points are located at the yang [region]".

Pain of the Liver and Heart: Xingjian LIV-2 and Taichong LIV-3 (Thousand Ducat Formulas). SHU-STREAM POINTS "The point at which the qi pours through is known as the shu-stream" ('shu' means 'to transport'). The shu-stream points of the three arm yin are all located at the flexure of the wrist. The shu-stream points of the other nine channels are all located proximal to the metacarpo-phalangeal or metatarso-phalangealjoints, with the exceptionof Taixi KID-3 which is located posterior to the medial malleolus.
