UB 35 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "UB 35" , 會陽, is represented by "Hui Yang" in pinyin and "Meeting of Yang" in english and may be found:

.5 cun lateral to the GV line on either side of the tip of the coccyx bone.

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

  • Clears damp heat from the lower warmer - principle point for hemorrhoids, also vaginal disharges/leukorrhea, diarrhea.
  • Trauma a/or pain of the coccyx, deviation.
  • Potentially useful for impotence and/or swellings in the genitals or in the lower warmer area generally.

A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB35, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Bladder Damp Heat

UB 35 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Genital Pain - Swelling, Hemorrhoids, Impotence (Erectile Dysfunction) and/or Leukorrhea

While not necessarily valid clinically, EX Huatuojiaji at S5 (S5 influences the rectum and is ussed for hemorrh…), GB 30 (Sciatica, pain, numbness, atrophy of lower back, …) and GV 1 ( Main point for hemorrhoi…) are nearby.
