Small Intestine 7 is the seventh point on the Small Intestine acupuncture channel.
The point lies on the anterior face of the arm, 5 cun proximal to Small Intestine 5, on a line between Small intestine 5 and Small Intestine 8.
SI-7 Small intestine 7 is between the ulna bone and the flexor carpi ulnaris.
Ideally find this point with the patient lying supine, forearm resting on the chest. In other words, the forearm should be pronated.
Needle perpendicularly to the skin, up to 1 cun.
For more on how this point is used, see Small Intestine Luo channel.
I have heard comments from a number of sources about the use of this point. Where I remember the source, it's in brackets.

Please note! The Kindle editions are less easy to read!
I'm gradually improving this, but 'Qi Stagnation' and 'Yin Deficiency' still remain to be re-edited.
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.
