The "59 piercings" are named in the Su Wen Ch. 61 and mentioned in Su Wen Ch. 32 and Ling Shu Ch. 23 for treating Heat diseases. This point along with Pohu Bl-42, Shentang Bl-44, Hunmen Bl-47 and Yishe Bl-49 clear Heat from the five Zang.

Jeffrey Yuen (2005, 3 Spirits & 7 Souls) suggests for inability to express fear we can direct the Yuan qi to here for expression by needling Shenshu Bl-23 outwards and then this point relatively perpendicularly.
For excessive fear we can direct it back to the Zang by needling this point obliquely towards the inner Bladder line and then needling Shenshu Bl-23 downards.
