Needle Kongxui on the anterior surface of the arm, 7 cun proximal to Lung 9, lateral to the flexor carpi radialis muscle.
Measure the distance between the elbow and wrist creases and divide it by 12. This point is 7/12 proximal from the wrist crease, and therefore 5/12 of the distance from the elbow crease towards the wrist.
The point lies on a fairly straight line between these points. There is a hollow or depression at the point which may be sensitive to probing.
Needle the point perpendicularly or obliquely to the skin surface, up to 1.5 cun. If deqi is obtained strongly here it can be directed up to the lung organ.
Used more to clear acute and full Lung conditions, both hot and cold, than in deficiency conditions:
This point is often easy to find (you can do it by eye), useful and powerful.
Many people take social drugs or medication, alcohol or tobacco, that affect their breathing and lead to what are called fullness and heat in the blood. In emergency, the point can be massaged by hand to activate it.
It can help many breathing conditions, including loss of voice and where there is blood loss from the lungs (from invasion by external pathogenic factors).
There are other points on the line between Lung 5 and Lung 9 that greatly help the same conditions as Lung 6. Palpate to find them. Some of them come from the heritage of Dr Tung.
