For example, ST 37, the lower he sea point of the LI will treat diarrhea. Four Seas Points Theory and Applications The Four Seas are point groupings which have a strong effect on their related system within the body (i.e. qi, blood, marrow, digestion). The Sea of Qi Points (ST 9, CV 17, GV 15, GV 14) effect the amount and flow of Qi (energy) within the body. A person with excess Qi may experience problems of an excess nature in the upper body (headache, red face, fullness in the chest, etc.). A person with Qi deficiency may experience problems with fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, etc. The Sea of Blood Points (UB 11, ST 37, ST 39) effect the amount and flow of Blood (which constitutes more than the western idea of blood) within the body. Excesses in the Blood, according to the classics, may make someone feel larger than they are and make them aware of a subtle illness or imbalance within their body. Blood excess is not a primary diagnosis in TCM, whereas Blood stagnation is. Blood deficiency may lead to a variety of issues within a person such as dizziness, dryness, thinking problems, etc. Again, according to the classics, Blood deficiency may make someone feel smaller than they are, however, this doesn't seem to be a common complaint in modern clinical practice. For Blood issues, points such as UB 17, UB 18, UB 19, SP 10 and LV 8 are much more widely used. The Sea of Water and Grain Points (ST 30, ST 36) effect digestion and appetite. The Sea of Marrow Points (GV 20, GV 16) effect mental functioning and energy levels. When deficient a person may experience fatigue, tinnitus, weakness in the lower limbs, etc. Hui Meeting Points Theory and Applications The Hui Meeting Points, also called the "Eight Influential Points" or the "Gathering Points," are a special set of points which have a broad effect on their related area (i.e. qi, blood, vessels, bones, etc.). LV 13 - meeting of the yin organs, SP Mu CV 12 - meeting of the yang organs, ST Mu CV 17 - meeting of the Qi, PC Mu, moves Qi in the chest UB 17 - meeting of the Blood, builds blood, resolves stagnation a/or disperses heat in the Blood GB 34 - meeting of the sinews, resolves stiffness a/or contracture LU 9 - meeting of the Blood vessels, stimulates circulation, tonifies LU Qi, harmonizes the Qi and Blood in the chest, stops bleeding UB 11 - meeting of the bones, any bone disorder, osteoporosis GB 39 - meeting of the marrow, bone disorders, mental functioning, useful post-stroke Command Points Theory and Applications There are currently 6 commonly accepted command points used within TCM. Some texts only contain four command points as PC 6 and DM 26 were added after the original four. The Command Points are individual points that have strong and broad effects on their related part of the body. They are used to treat any imbalance in their designated areas from any etiology (hot, cold, excess, deficiency) at any stage (i.e. chronic or acute).

5 Sky Window Points Theory and Applications The Sky Window points are a set of acupuncture points drawn from the Ling Shu. Generally they are not popularly used points, although some systems of acupuncture utilize them to a greater degree than others. The basic functions of the points are to improve the flow of energy between the head and the rest of the body. The points can be used for local issues such as neck pain, but also more complex issues such as multiple sclerosis and dizziness for example. The points are used extensively within the Tom Tam Healing System for a range of conditions such as MS, Parkinsons, Brain Tumors, etc. - in essence to facilitate the smooth flow of Blood and Qi to and from the Brain. The points and their clinical indications are as follows: ST 9 - regulation of blood pressure, headaches, chest tightness LI 18 - regulation of blood pressure TH 16 - sudden deafness, vision disturbances UB 10 - neck pain, occipital headache, wind-cold invasion LU 3 - neck pain, goiters, depression, asthma, grief, coughing of blood CV 22 - throat/vocal cord issues, aphasia, asthma, chest tightness SI 16/SI 17 - throat issues, goiters GV 16 - wind-cold invasion, dizziness, tremors, headache, eye issues, aphasia PC 1 - reflux, hiccups, chest tightness, breast issues, insufficient lactation Entry Exit Points Theory and Applications The entry/exit points that are not the first or the last points on the meridian are marked with an "*" and with the first or last point within parentheses. The entry/exit points are also in red on the meridian flow diagram following the chart. Not all of the entry exit points are the first and the last points on a meridian. The exceptions are LU 7, LI 4, ST 42, KD 22, PC 8, TH 22 and GB 41. The entry exit points do not have a strong theoretical usage in modern clinical practice, however, they may be considered if you want to allow a relative excess or deficiency in one meridian to be offset by it's yin yang paired meridian. For example, if you want to drain excess from the LU and have it flow into a deficient LI you could needle LU 7 and LI 4. The Entry Exit points are used extensively in Five Element (Worsley) Style Acupuncture. Our article on Classical Five Element Acupuncture discusses the clinical usage of the entry/exit points. Shokanten Points & the Nine Continent Pulses Theory and Applications The Nine Continent Pulses may be used when the when the pulse via the radial artery offers inconclusive information. The pulses are also used to aid in the comparative analysis of meridians in the upper and lower portions of the body. The Shokanten points are often used to treat conditions arising from a psycho-emotional background. For example, the use of KD 12 when fear is an associated aspect of a child's bedwetting issues.
