A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. ST34, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Spleen Qi Deficiency, Stomach Food Stagnation and/or Stomach Rebellious Qi

ST 34 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Abdominal Pain, Acid Reflux Disease (GERD), Breast Distention, Knee Pain, Leg Pain, Parkinson's Disease (PD) and/or Vomiting
