SP 13 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "SP 13" , 府舍, is represented by "Fushe" in pinyin and "Bowel Abode" in english and may be found:

.7 cun laterosuperior to SP 12 and 4 cun lateral to the anterior midline (between CV 2 and CV 3).

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

  • Abdominal pain, abdominal masses (fibroids, cysts, etc.), hernia, thigh pain - regulates the liver, qi, and alleviates pain.

A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. SP13, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver Qi Stagnation

SP 13 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Abdominal Pain, Cysts, Fibroids, Hernia and/or Leg Pain

While not necessarily valid clinically, CV 2 ( Generally useful for Deficiency and Cold-Type…), CV 3 (Generally useful for Excess-Type Genito-urinary d…), KD 11 (KD 11, KD 12, KD 13, KD 14 & KD 15 all inters…), KD 12 (KD 11, KD 12, KD 13, KD 14 & KD 15 all inters…), ST 29 (Excess or Cold/Deficient disorders of the Lower W…) and ST 30 (Upper Sea of Water & Grain Point - excess or …) are nearby.
