Acupuncture Point Theory
The acupuncture point "EX Huatuojiaji at T4" , 華佗夾脊, is represented by "Huatuojiaji" in pinyin and "Sides of Spine at T4" in english and may be found:
.5 cun lateral to the lower border of the spinous processes of T4
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. EXHuatuojiaji at T4, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Heart Yin Deficiency and/or Kidney Yin Deficiency
EX Huatuojiaji at T4 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Acne, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Psoriasis, Skin Cancer, Skin Problems (Rash), Sweat Problems and/or Sweaty Palms (Hyperhidrosis)
While not necessarily valid clinically, SI 11 (Breast problems, mastitis, insufficient lactation…), UB 14 (For all heart conditions: palpitations, anxiety, …) and UB 43 ( Main point for all disorders of the Lung and Up…) are nearby.
