The acupuncture point "GB 27" , 五樞, is represented by "Wu Shu" in pinyin and "Fifth Pivot" in english and may be found:

On the lateral side of the abdomen, anterior to the ASIS, 3 cun below the level of the umbilicus (lateral to CV 4)

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

  • GB 26, GB 27 & GB 28 are all useful points on the Dai Mai meridian which influences the GB, KD, Chong Mai, CV & GV Meridians.
  • GB 27 is more useful for male issues - testicular pain a/or retraction, lower abdominal pain, shan disorder

Gb 27 has the following theoretical associations which serve as important guideposts in designing an effective treatment protocol:

  • Intersection Point of the GB & Dai Mai Meridians

While not necessarily valid clinically, KD 13 (KD 11, KD 12, KD 13, KD 14 & KD 15 all inters…) and ST 28 (Excess Cold/Damp Issues of the Lower Warmer - ret…) are nearby.
