GB 12 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "GB 12" , 完骨, is represented by "Wan Gu" in pinyin and "Completion Bone" in english and may be found:

In a depression posterior and inferior to the mastoid process

Of many possible clinical applications, it may be considered to influence the following issues/symptoms:

  • Dispel exterior & interior wind from the head - tinnitus, tremors in the head, occipital headache, neck rotation ROM issues.
  • Regulates and calms the spirit - insomnia

Gb 12 has the following theoretical associations which serve as important guideposts in designing an effective treatment protocol:

  • Intersection Point of the GB & UB Meridians

While not necessarily valid clinically, SI 17 (Both SI 16 & SI 17 are Window of the Sky Poin…), ST 6 (Eliminate wind from the face - TMJ, toothache, Be…) and UB 10 (Relieves pain - neck issues, stiffness, ROM, occi…) are nearby.
