UB 6 has some precautions to be considered (see our precautions list).

A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB6, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver Wind and/or Lung Wind Invasion - Wind Heat
UB 6 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Headache, Vision Problems and/or Vomiting
While not necessarily valid clinically, GB 17 (Clears Heat and Regulates the Gallbladder. Headac…), GV 22 ( Nasal issues - congestion, olfactory problems…) and ST 8 (Classically mentioned for "splitting headache; he…) are nearby.
