ST 19 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "ST 19" , 不容, is represented by "Burong" in pinyin and "Not Contained" in english and may be found:

2 cun lateral to the AML level with CV 14.


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

  • Abdominal pain, bloating, vomiting (rebellious stomach qi).
  • Gastric pain, gall bladder issues.
  • Anorexia, poor appetite.

A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. ST19, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver and Gallbladder Damp Heat and/or Stomach Rebellious Qi

ST 19 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Abdominal Pain, Acid Reflux Disease (GERD), Anorexia Nervosa, Gallstones (Cholelithiasis), Gastritis and/or Vomiting

While not necessarily valid clinically, CV 14 (Any Shen or Heart issue arising from an Excess or…), KD 21 (Local point for abdominal and intestinal pain and…) and LV 14 (Strong effect on the middle and upper warmers - s…) are nearby.
