GV 27 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "GV 27" , 兌端, is represented by "Dui Duan" in pinyin and "Extremity of the Mouth" in english and may be found:

At the junction of the upper lip and the philtrum.


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

  • Problems of the mouth and sinuses - tongue ulcers, bad breath (halitosis), pain a/or swelling of the gums, nosebleed, nasal congestion.
  • Psychological/Shen issues - manic depression, epilepsy, etc.  

GV 27 has some precautions to be considered (see our precautions list).

Avoid Moxa (MX)

While not necessarily valid clinically, LI 19 (Sinus congestion. Nasal polyps, sores. Noseblee…) and LI 20 (Loss of smell or taste, nasal discharge, any nose…) are nearby.
