▲ Harmonizing Acupuncture Points조화혈부(調和穴部)

All joints have its own roles. Human body is not fell under movements and it is one of the important roles of elbow and knee joints.

In order to dance, play table tennis, or to walk on tight wire, coordination of all joint’s movement is required. But movements which need delicate and fast actions are depend on roles of elbow and knee joints. The elbow and knee joints are mainly used for balancing posture and preventing collapse of the body with movements of center of gravity.

Therefore, if we use the characteristics of the elbows and knees joints, symptoms caused by Qi disruption would be treated and stabilizing Qi movement smoothly. On the elbows and knees joins, there are He points which are one of five Shu points. He points are indicated for perverse Qi flow such as diarrhea or coughing. Diarrhea could be seen due to perverse Qi but it could be seen due to scattered Qi. Therefore, Shu points like St 36 and Li 11 which are on Yangming meridian are widely used for balancing Qi. Yangming meridian considered as a meridian which has lots of blood and Qi.

For severe Qi deficiency and mixed status with fullness and emptiness, inserting St 36 and Li 11 are preventing from paint due to strong preferential movement of Qi and enhancing balance of Qi distribution after acupuncture needling. So, acupuncture points located on elbows and knees joints are called as Harmonizing acupuncture points.

▲ Stimulating Acupuncture points 추동혈부(推動穴部)

It is common that an athlete is preparing and warming up for a big game by rotating and loosing muscle on the wrists and ankles. I believe that the movement is quite good idea. Based on acupuncture theory, rotating and loosing muscle on the wrists and ankles before a big game makes sense. Joints on the wrists and knees control sensitive movements and also perform explosive and powerful movements. Acupuncture points on the wrists and knees stimuli Qi and enhance Qi circulation by pushing and pulling Qi movements.

Due to its locations and functions of the Stimulating acupuncture points, there are powerful enough acupuncture points to control whole body. Hans acupuncture technique and reflexology points are located on the Stimulating acupuncture points. And 5 Shu points except He points are on the Stimulating acupuncture points. 80% of acupuncture points that are used for Sa-am acupuncture and many acupuncture points of Master Tong’s are also on the Stimulating acupuncture points.

The Stimulating acupuncture points could be understood as acupuncture points that are located on the wrists and knees joint and a broad sense it could be understood any acupuncture points on the hands and feets.

 

Ⅱ. Theory of Acupuncture Point Location혈부론

A function of an acupuncture point is not limited only for kinetic aspect. Let’s study more functions of acupuncture points.

▲ Relationship with an Appearance and Its Energy동형동기(同形同氣)

Acupuncture theories has developed by accumulation of knowledge of metaphysical and abstract concept and its clinical application.

In general, a cinnamon tree considered as warm characteristics. But branches of the cinnamon tree are used for warming hands and feet and the truck is used for warming the stomach.

Acupuncture theories are closely related to appearance of objects. Therefore, to understand indications or functions of acupuncture points, you must look closely where the acupuncture points are located. Not to be mention that similar shapes have similar energy.

In this method, points that correspond on the same plane can be chosen to treat a particular disease.

For example, as you use master Tong’s acupuncture technique in order to reduce pain on the shoulder pain, acupuncture points located on the knees. Also, acupuncture points that treats knee pain are located on the shoulders.

The technique is more sophisticated technique that uses same appearance has same energy for treating pain. Again, energy on shoulder especially on deltoid muscle area and knees look similar and energy on those parts are same and it is applicable for curing any abnormality on affected area.

▲ Relationship with Characteristic and Its Energy 동질동기(同質同氣)

It is not practical for memorizing every acupuncture point’s indications and it make harder to take care unfamiliar symptoms for acupuncturists.

However, if you understand my theories regarding acupuncture points selection it would make you feel more comfortable and more practical.

It means that same characteristic such as skin, tendon, regiment, and born have similar energy regardless locations. For instance, BL 60 is used for reducing the upper back pain. Because BL 60 is guiding down Qi on upper body to down to make balance and enhance whole body circulation for reducing pain on upper body. If you apply same characteristic has same energy, it would be explained. BL 60 is on calcaneal tendon. If the BL 60 was stimulated similar shaped neck and also tendon on back of the neck and upper back tendons would be stimulated and Qi movement on the upper back would be increased.
