Zuwuli, Leg Five Miles, Liver 10 is a point on the Liver acupuncture channel where it ascends the medial thigh.
I don't use it much, and if I do, it's mainly to back up other points on the channel or to emphasise the aim of my treatment.
Perpendicularly or obliquely to the skin surface, up to 1.5 cun.
Needling Liver 10 produces a local distending sensation that may extend towards the knee. A mild 'moving' sensation may be felt in the hypochondria on the same side as the needle.
Moxa: up to 5x. However, before doing so, be aware of the main function of the point, see below, to clear Heat (and Damp).
Moxa here might be counter-productive.
As mentioned, this point is not much used - at least by me! Perhaps that's because I don't see many cases of Damp-Heat in the genitals or with urine retention or pain nowadays. (I've no doubt they exist, but people in Scotland with those conditions usually expect their Doctor to manage such a condition with medication.)

Please note! The Kindle editions are less easy to read! Although the paper editions cost more, they are much easier to read and to refer back and forth to the contents and index.
Here are some of the books Jonathan has written:
Still only one comment, though personally I think this is my best book so far.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
No comments yet: just published. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
