Hi Chad:

I don't know if its possible to use TR for this but given my financial situation and what I might be able to do on my own, I am going to ask. I know this might be better served with acupuncture but:
I also have liver qi stagnation as dx by a TCM friend of mine that goes along with CFS. He said if I could work on that somehow it would help greatly.
So are there TR points that might help with this issue or other self help things I can do. I am working on the emotional part on my own.

This post has the following associations:

Acupoints: gb 20, gv 16, gv 20, li 18, si 16, st 36, ub 9

CFS is often treated with both Tong Ren Therapy and Acupuncture. From a TCM/Acupuncture perspective you can read my Acupuncture for Chronic Fatigue article. This will include basic diagnosis and treatment points. With regards to Liver Qi Stagnation, that condition along with points is described here.

We have very good results using Tong Ren Therapy for Chronic Fatigue. Within our system we generally use points such as UB 9, GB 20, SI 16, LI 18, huatuo of C1 and T2, GV 20, ST 36, and GV 16.

I hope that is helpful.
