Acupuncture Point Theory
The acupuncture point "EX Xinming 1" is represented by "Xinming 1" in pinyin and may be found:
Midpoint of the skin folds posterior to the earlobe, 5 fen anterior-superior to TH 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. EXXinming 1, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver Wind
EX Xinming 1 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Eye Problems, Glaucoma, Trigeminal Neuralgia and/or Vision Problems
While not necessarily valid clinically, TH 17 (Wind problems deriving from internal or external …) are nearby.
