    Each vessel has a confluent point, whichwe 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 ofinfluence

    This is a very simple methodology forconstructing point combinations. It usesprimarily very commonly-used points;

    other points with similar or more

    specialized functions may be substitutedas you like.

    Some points are marked with an asterisk(*); this means the point should betreated by moxibustion.

    & water point) Effect on the opposite end of the channel

    (less than Jing-well)

    Can substitute for Jing-well Can combine w/Shu-stream to treatZang

    Classic of Difficulties

    69

    In deficiency, tonify the Mother In excess, drain the Child Tonify first and then drain

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    47/105

    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

    Example: Lung Excess: Drain LU5(Water point on Metal Channel)

    YUAN SOURCE

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    48/105

    YUAN-SOURCE

    POINTS Each of the twelve primary channels hasa yuan-source point where it is said the

    original qi surfaces and lingers.

    On yin channels, the yuan-source pointsare the same as the shu-stream points.

    When the five zang are diseased, selectthe yuan-source points, they are the

    primary point on the yin channels for this

    purpose.

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    49/105

    On the yang channels their importanceand indications they are quite differentfrom the yuan-source points of the yin

    channels.

    Their principal actions are to dispelvarious kinds of excess pathogenic

    factors and to treat disorders along thepathway of their respective channels.

    LUO CONNECTING

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    50/105

    The actions of the luo-connecting points:

    i. treating disorders of their interiorly-

    exteriorly related channel or zang-fu,

    ii. treating disorders in regions reachedby the luo-connecting channel

    iii. treating psycho-emotional disorders.

    Known as the host and guestcombination

    The yuan-source point of the first orprimarily affected channel is combined

    with the luo-connecting point of itsinteriorly-exteriorly coupled channel.

    THE METHOD OF COMBINING THE

    YUAN-SOURCE AND LUO-

    CONNECTING POINTS

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    52/105

    Used in cases where all 3 yin or yangchannels of the arm or leg are affected.

    SJ 8 - 3 arm Yang (LI, SJ, SI) PC 5 - 3 arm Yin (LU, PC, HE)

    Xi-cleft points in general are indicated inthe treatment of acute conditions and

    pain.

    Xi-cleft points of the yin channels havean additional action of treating disordersof blood.

    XI-CLEFT POINTS

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    54/105

    the shu points are situated in the yangregion, they may be used to treat yin

    diseases- most practitioners use theback-shu points of the zang more

    frequently, while the front-mu points may

    be favored for diseases of the fu.

    Back-shu points do not treat channeldisorders; may be indicated in some

    disorders of the sense organs.

    BACK-SHU POINTS

  • 7/29/2019 PTI Review1

    55/105

    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).

    The front-mu points their respective zangfubut not their respective channel.

    The corresponding back-shu and front-mupoints are also frequently combined in

    treatment.
