The acupuncture point "UB 9" , 玉枕, is represented by "Yu Zhen" in pinyin and "Jade Pillow" in english and may be found:
1.3 cun lateral to GV 17 or 2.5 cun above the PHL, 1.3 cun lateral to the PML in depression level with GV 17.
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. UB9, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver Wind and/or Lung Wind Invasion - Wind Cold
UB 9 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Common Cold, Eye Problems, Fever, Headache, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's Disease (PD), Sinus Infection, Sinusitis and/or Stroke (CVA)
