Acupuncture Point Theory
The acupuncture point "UB 5" , 五處, is represented by "Wu Chu" in pinyin and "Fifth Place" in english and may be found:
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. UB5, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver Fire, Liver Wind, Liver Yang Rising and/or Lung Wind Invasion - Wind Heat
UB 5 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Dizziness (Vertigo), Epilepsy (Seizure), Eye Problems, Headache, Manic Depression and/or Sinusitis
While not necessarily valid clinically, GV 23 (Main point for nose problems, nasal congestion, r…), UB 3 (Local point for headaches, nasal obstruction. Ep…), UB 4 (Local point for headache and/or nasal issues. He…) and UB 16 (Hot a/or toxic skin conditions (esp. on the back)…) are nearby.
