On the dorsal surface of the foot, between the first and second toes, distal to the metatarso-phalangeal joint of the big toe.
Depth: half to one cun.
This puts it in the webbing between the first and second toes, half-way between the joint and the web.
Finding it should be easy, but I don't find it so. Often the point is closer to the joint than I think it should be.
Local sensation, sometimes extending to the big toe.
Liver 2, because it clears Fire and Liver Yang, has in effect the ability to support Kidney Yang.
Like Liver 3 Taichong it is excellent at clearing a wiry pulse.
This point and Liver 3 affect the head strongly, more than other points. Hence it is good at treating, when a syndrome concurs:
I think of this point as being useful where there is too much Liver Fire or Liver Yang energy, leading to outbursts of anger, or ongoing irritability and feelings of frustration, even resentment.
We all want to seem 'balanced'. When our energy is disturbed, we often can't recognise that we are 'out of balance'.
It is important that we can vent our emotions naturally, but afterwards - and assuming we have not caused hurt to others or ourselves, we should return to our balance.
The name of this point, Walk Between, suggests to me that it helps people return to balance, especially if their tendency is to anger.
This point seems to ease excess Liver energy in the Heat and Belly, but angry people often feel a fullness, a bursting sensation, in the chest and this point is great for that too.

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.
