Conception Vessel points lie along the Conception Vessel acupuncture channel, which runs up the anterior mid-line of the body.
Some of these points are very important to acupuncturists because they back up treatments using other acupuncture points. Many of them are vital in developing and influencing Yin energy. Others are powerful local points, for energy, the womb, the stomach and so on.
One or two of them are forbidden to use, for instance, on pregnant women. Some are Alarm or Front-Mu points.
They aren't usually the first points to be taught in Acupuncture Colleges because what the Conception Vessel and its points do can take a bit of understanding.
If you are receiving acupuncture at one of these points, click on the point's name in the table below to read more about it.
In many cases, Ren Mo points are powerful energy centres so are used only when the energies are flowing smoothly in what your acupuncturist deems is the right direction.
To take an analogy, suppose you put rocket fuel in a small car (just supposing it would work like a rocket!). If the car's engine is out of tune, the driver dozy, the body fabric rusty and the wheels out of alignment, what might happen?
It would be better to use rocket fuel only when you know the driver is alert, relaxed, ready and healthy, and his car is in good condition with good brakes. Otherwise, he might drive recklessly and cause damage.
Likewise, an acupuncturist might aim to get everything else in your body working smoothly and in balance before greatly boosting your energy. Of course, the more experienced the acupuncturist, the more he or she might know how to use these points early on.
