Master Tung’s Magic Points: Five Different Ways to Address Shao Yang Neck and Shoulder Pain

In Tung’s Acupuncture, we find some very powerful points that are located just anterior (or medial) to GB34 Yang Ling Quan. Because metal (Lung) controls wood (Liver/Gallbladder), these points are exceptionally useful in the treatment of tendons and ligaments, obtaining their strength from their proximity to GB34, the Sea of Tendons. With the Reaction Areas of Lung and Teeth, they are exceptionally for temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ). Located between the Shao Yang and Yang Ming channels, Beside Three Miles also draw from ST36 Zu San Li (Leg Three Miles), hence their name. In Tung’s body of work, many points found between the Stomach and Gallbladder channels are loosely classified as “Gallbladder channel points.” All of them have a powerful effect on the Shao Yang aspect of the head and neck, face, jaw and five senses; therefore, it is important to determine the root cause of the pathology before choosing from the following points: 77.22/77.23 Beside Three Miles, 77.05-77.07 Three Weights, 77.24/77.25 Leg Five Gold/ Leg Thousand Gold, 77.27 Outer Three Gates, 88.17-88.19 Four Horses, and 88.25 Center None Miles (aka.GB31). All Gallbladder points deal with joints, tendons and wind, especially Beside Three Miles, but we also want to think of bone and bone marrow as related to Foot Shao Yang (blood and Sea of Marrow)
