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.)
