The acupuncture point "ST 10" , 水突, is represented by "Shuitu" in pinyin and "Water Prominence" in english and may be found:
Midway between ST 9 and ST 11 at the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoideus muscle.
Of many possible clinical applications, it may be considered to influence the following issues/symptoms:
A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. ST10, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Stomach Rebellious Qi
ST 10 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Constipation, Goiter, Hyperlipidemia and/or Sore Throat
While not necessarily valid clinically, EX Tian Dong (Note: This point is not a standard acupuncture p…) and LI 17 (Sore throat, loss of voice, sensation of somethin…) are nearby.
