Lung Rebellious Qi

TCM Diagnostic Pattern

Lung Rebellious Qi TCM Pattern Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential approaches for lung rebellious qi.

Note that in Chinese Medicine theory, treatment is generally directed towards "lung rebellious qi" and other patterns the individual may be presenting with. Issues may arise from other layered patterns and/or from other issues. Treatment approaches are akin to unravelling an onion, with the goal of resolving the root factor involved in the constellation of resulting issues. The current and historical array of issues and signs must be taken into consideration as well as the timing of the onset of each individual aspect.

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific diagnostic patter or condition. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
