Stomach 42

Chinese Name: Chongyang (English translation: Rushing Yang)

Location:  At the highest point of the dorsum of the foot, between the tendons m. extensor hallucis longus and digitorum longus, where the dorsal artery of the foot pulsates.

Classification: Yuan-Source point of the Stomach Meridian

Indications:

  • Gastric pain, abdominal distention
  • Swelling and pain of the dorsum of the foot
  • Swelling of the face, toothache, deviation of the mouth and eye

Functions: Clears Heat from the Stomach meridian, harmonizes the Stomach, calms the Shen, activates the meridian, and stops pain.

Notes: Clinically, Yuan-Source points are of great significance in treating diseases of the internal organs. Yuan-Source points are the sites where the Yuan (Primary) qi of the Zang-Fu organs passes and stays. Puncturing the Yuan-Source points stimulates the vital energy of the regular meridians, regulates the functional activities of the internal organs, reinforces antipathogenic factors and eliminates pathogenic factors. This method of treating diseases deals principally with the root causes. The Yuan (source) point from the affected meridian is often combined with the Luo (Connecting) point of the internally-externally related meridians in use.

Needling: Perpendicular insertion .2 - .5 cun.
