slide3
The Conception vessel (Ren Mai)
  • Primarily treats reproductive and gynecological problems, abdominal and chest symptoms as well as general yin conditions.
  • The Governing Vessel (Du Mai)
  • Primarily treats pain in the spine, back and neck, and neurological problems as well as general yang conditions.
slide4
The Girdling Vessel (Dai Mai) encircles the body at the waist. It regulates the ascending and descending of qi and treats pain in the lower abdomen and back and leukorrhea.
  • The Penetrating Vessel (Chong Mai) regulates blood in the uterus and is used to treat gynecological and digestive problems as well as rebellious qi.

The Yin and Yang Motility Vessels (Qiao Mai) regulate the opening and closing of the eyes and muscle balance in the lower body.
  • They treat musculoskeletal and neurological problems as well as sleep disturbances.
  • For example, the Yin Qiao treats medial leg spasm, somnolence and night seizures, and the Yang Qiao treats lateral leg spasm, insomnia and day seizures.

Each vessel has a confluent point, which we have noted earlier. In some cases the confluent point is a point of intersection of the vessel with a regular channel, in some cases it is not.
  • The confluent points are often paired, and the pairs have specific areas of influence
slide11
Conception vessel (LU-7) is paired with the Yin Motility Vessel (KID-6)
  • Treats: Chest, diaphragm and throat
  • Penetrating Vessel (SP-4) is paired with the Yin Linking Vessel (P-6)
  • Treats: Stomach, heart and chest
slide12
Governing Vessel (SI-3) is paired with the Yang Motility Vessel (BL-62)
  • Treats: Inner canthus, neck, ear, shoulder, upper back
  • Girdling Vessel (GB-41) is paired with the Yang Linking Vessel (SJ-5)
  • Treats: Outer canthus, cheek, neck, back of ears and shoulder
slide14
This is a very simple methodology for constructing point combinations. It uses primarily very commonly-used points; other points with similar or more specialized functions may be substituted as you like.
  • Some points are marked with an asterisk (*); this means the point should be treated by moxibustion.

mother child points
Mother-Child Points
  • AKA, “Tonification (Supplementation)” and
  • “Dispersion (Sedation) (Draining)” Points
  • Based on Five-Phase (Five-Element) theory, specifically Classic of Difficulties 69.
  • Most often applied to Yin channels
classic of difficulties 69
Classic of Difficulties 69
  • “In deficiency, tonify the Mother
  • In excess, drain the Child
  • Tonify first and then drain”
slide47
Mother Point = Point representing phase/ element preceding affected channel on Sheng (Generating cycle)
  • Example: Lung Deficiency: Tonify LU9 (Earth point on Metal Channel)
  • Child Point = Point representing phase/ element following affected channel on Sheng (Generating cycle)
  • Example: Lung Excess: Drain LU5 (Water point on Metal Channel)
yuan source points
YUAN-SOURCE POINTS
  • Each of the twelve primary channels has a yuan-source point where it is said the original qi surfaces and lingers.
  • On yin channels, the yuan-source points are the same as the shu-stream points.
  • “When the five zang are diseased, select the yuan-source points”, they are the primary point on the yin channels for this purpose.
slide50
On the yang channels their importance and indications they are quite different from the yuan-source points of the yin channels.
  • Their principal actions are to dispel various kinds of excess pathogenic factors and to treat disorders along the pathway of their respective channels.
luo connecting points
LUO CONNECTING POINTS
  • The actions of the luo-connecting points:
  • i. treating disorders of their interiorly-exteriorly related channel or zang-fu,
  • ii. treating disorders in regions reached by the luo-connecting channel
  • iii. treating psycho-emotional disorders.
the method of combining the yuan source and luo connecting points
THE METHOD OF COMBINING THE YUAN-SOURCE AND LUO-CONNECTING POINTS
  • Known as the ‘host and guest combination’
  • The yuan-source point of the first or primarily affected channel is combined with the luo-connecting point of its interiorly-exteriorly coupled channel.
group luo points
Group Luo Points
  • Used in cases where all 3 yin or yang channels of the arm or leg are affected.

  • Back-shu points do not treat channel disorders; may be indicated in some disorders of the sense organs.
front mu points
FRONT-MU POINTS
  • Front-mu points have a wide application, including excess, deficiency, hot and cold patterns; they can be used diagnostically (as can the back-shu points).
