Center of Power (CV12)

Caution: Do not hold this point deeply if you have a chronic or life-threatening illness such as heart disease, cancer, or high blood pressure. It is best not to hold this point for more than two minutes and to use it only on a fairly empty stomach.

Location: On the midline of the body, halfway between the base of the breastbone and the belly button.


Sea of Energy (CV 6)

Location: Two finger widths below the navel, four finger widths above the pubic bone.


Sea of Vitality (B23 and B 47)

Caution: If you have a weak back, the Sea of Vitality points may be quite tender. In this case a few minutes of light, stationary touch instead of deep pressure can be very healing. See your doctor first if you have questions or need medical advice.

Location: In the lower back (between the second and third lumbar vertebrae) two to four finger widths away from the spine at waist level.


Pericardium 6 (P 6)

Location: On the palm side of the wrist, 3 fingers widths above the wrist between the two tendons


Three Mile Point (St 36)

Location: Four finger widths below the kneecap, one finger width to the outside of the shin bone. If you are the correct spot a muscle should flex as you move your foot up and down.


Grandfather Grandson (Sp 4)

Location: On the arch, one thumb width from the ball of the foot toward the heel.
