Urinary Bladder 64

Chinese Name: Jinggu (English translation: Capital Bone)

Location: On the lateral aspect of the foot, below the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal bone, at the junction of the red and white skin.

Classification: Yuan-Source point of the Urinary Bladder Meridian


  • Headache, neck rigidity, nebula
  • Pain of the lumbar and leg

Functions: Relaxes the sinews, dispels Wind, calms the Shen, activates the meridian, alleviates pain.

Notes: Clinically, Yuan-Source points are of great significance in treating diseases of the internal organs. Yuan-Source points are the sites where the Yuan (Primary) qi of the Zang-Fu organs passes and stays. Puncturing the Yuan-Source points stimulates the vital energy of the regular meridians, regulates the functional activities of the internal organs, reinforces antipathogenic factors and eliminates pathogenic factors. This method of treating diseases deals principally with the root causes. The Yuan (source) point from the affected meridian is often combined with the Luo (Connecting) point of the internally-externally related meridians in use.

Needling: Perpendicular insertion .3 - .5 cun.
