LI 10 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "LI 10" , 手三里, is represented by "Shou San Li" in pinyin and "Arm Three Li" in english and may be found:

2 cun below LI 11 on the LI 5 to LI 11 line.

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

  • The following relationships exist between the ST and the LI and can be used to treat ST, LI and SI organ problems:
  • SI: LI 8 & ST 39
  • LI: LI 9 & ST 37
  • ST: LI 10 & ST 36
  • Shoulder, elbow & wrist pain issues, general achiness in these areas.
  • Paralysis in the upper limbs.
  • Less dispersive & more tonifying than other LI points.
  • Epigastric & abdominal pain, ulcers, vomiting.
  • Tong Ren/Tam Healing System: Abdominal issues, any digestive issues, pain in the arm/shoulder/neck, builds energy level.  

LI 10 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Parkinson's Disease (PD), Shoulder Pain, Tennis Elbow and/or Wrist Pain

While not necessarily valid clinically, TH 10 (Transforms phlegm, reduce lymph swellings, thyroi…) are nearby.
