  • Knee problems.  Often used with heding and the medial xiyan extra points.
  • Weakness and/or motor control issues of the lower leg, atrophy.
  • Beriberi (Thiamine, B1 deficiency).

ST 35 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Knee Pain
