Example text

The concept of treatment with meridian style acupuncture is ®rstly that in musculoskeletal treatment yang channels have a tendency towards excess and yin channels towards de®ciency. In this case the channel is seen as yang and the Zang Fu organs as yin. There is therefore a de®ciency in the constitution (core) of the individual and an excess in the symptoms (external). The approach parallels that of classical Japanese Acupuncture and emphasises the importance of the lungs, liver, spleen and kidneys as organs but pays little attention to the heart and pericardium.

Kidney (KI) The kidney meridian (Fig. 10) begins on the sole of the foot at KI-1. It Meridians passes medially to KI-2 anterior and inferior to the tuberosity of navicular, and then passes behind the medial malleolus to KI-3 (midway between the medial malleolus and the Achilles tendon). The meridian forms a loop, dropping down to KI-5 (1 cun inferior to KI-3) and then up again to KI-6 (1 cun below the prominence of the medial malleolus). The meridian ascends along the medial aspect of the leg intersecting with the spleen and liver meridians at SP-6 (the `three yin intersection', or `Sanyinjiao').

From here a branch of the meridian passes internally to the spine and enters the kidney organ and connects to the bladder. One branch passes up through the liver and lung to terminate at the root of the tongue. Another branch joins the heart and links to the pericardium channel at CV-17 (front mu point of the pericardium channel). At this point the kidney, small intestine, spleen and Triple Energiser channels meet with the CV (conception) channel. 5 cun lateral to the midline. 5 cun from the midline to KI-21 (level with CV-14, 6 cun above the umbilicus) where the channel moves laterally to KI-22 (in the 5th intercostal space) and now ascends 2 cun lateral to the midline, to terminate at KI-27 in the depression on the lower border of the clavicle.
