UB 54 Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "UB 54" , 秩邊, is represented by "Zhi Bian" in pinyin and "Sequential Limit" in english and may be found:

3 cun lateral to the GV line, level with the 4th PSF.


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

  • Sciatica especially if pain radiates along the posterior aspect of the leg.
  • Five Lin (Painful Urination) disorder.

While not necessarily valid clinically, UB 30 (Local point for low back, sacrum, tailbone and/or…) and UB 34 (UB 31, UB 32, UB 33 & UB 34 together form the…) are nearby.
