EX Tian Dong Acupuncture Point Applications and Theory

The acupuncture point "EX Tian Dong" is represented by "Tian Dong" in pinyin and "Sky Movement" in english and may be found:

Center point between GV 14 and CV 22, below SI 16, behind LI 17 at the corner of the neck and shoulder, angling 45 degrees downward towards C7.


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

  • Note:  This point is not a standard acupuncture point, it was developed by Master Tam for use within the Tam Healing System.
  • Tong Ren/Tam Healing System: Used to effect the circulation within the vertebral artery.  Useful for alzheimer's, brain tumors, dyslexia, MS, and many brain issues related to circulation. 
  • Falls into the category of Window of the Sky points within the Tam Healing system.

While not necessarily valid clinically, SI 16 (Both SI 16 & SI 17 are Window of the Sky Poin…), ST 9 (In ancient times the ST Qi was assessed by palpat…), ST 10 (Local point - swollen/sore throat, shortness of b…) and ST 11 (Local point - sore/swollen throat - counterflow q…) are nearby.
