SP 14 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "SP 14" , 腹結, is represented by "Fujie" in pinyin and "Abdominal Bind" in english and may be found:

1.3 cun below SP 15 and 4 cun lateral to the anterior midline on the lateral side of rectus abdominus.

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

  • Warms the middle warmer and dissipates cold for lower abdominal pain, diarrhea (from cold), abdominal pain, constipation.
  • Resolves counterflow qi - can be used to subdue fright (i.e. panic attacks) from counterflow qi disrupting the heart and/or cough from counterflow qi disrupting the lung.

A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. SP14, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Stomach Cold and/or Stomach Rebellious Qi

SP 14 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Abdominal Pain, Acid Reflux Disease (GERD), Constipation, Diarrhea and/or Panic Attack
