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.
In my experience, needling provokes just a strong deqi sensation locally.
If needed, the point is often a little sore to pressure.
Moxibustion: up to 4 cones.
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.
