ST - 2 (Location)
In the depression at the center of the infraorbital foramen.
Hint: Where dental blocks go.
ST - 2 (Indications)
ST - 4 (Location)

Hint: Right behind the lateral commissure of the lip.
ST- 4 (Indications)
ST - 6 (Location)
In the depression in the middle of the masseter muscle just rostral to the angle of the mandible.
Hint: Center of the "smile line."

2 cun lateral to the center of the umbilicus, in the center of the rectus abdominis muscle.
ST - 25 (Indications)
Front-Mu (Alarm) pont for LI
ST - 35a (Location)
Lateral Point; In the depression distal to the patella and lateral to the patellar ligament. Also referred to as "the lateral eye of the knee" or Wai Xi Yan.
ST - 35a (Indications)
Pelvic limb weakness
ST - 35b (Location)
In the depression distal to the patella and medial to the patellar ligament is a point also referred to as "the medial eye of the knee" or Nei Xi Yan.
Together with ST - 35a, the two points are referred to as Xi Yan.
ST - 35b (Indications)
Pelvic limb weakness
ST - 36 (Location)
3 cun distal to ST - 35a/b.
0.5 cun lateral to the cranial crest of the tibia; in the belly of the cranial tibialis muscle.
This is a long linear point.
Hint: Find the tibial crest and "fall off."
ST - 36 (Indications)
He-sea (Earth) point.
Master point for the GI tract and abdomen.
ST - 37 (Location)
3 cun distal to ST - 36.
0.5 cun lateral to the cranial aspect of the limb, in the cranial tibialis muscle.
ST - 37 (Indications)
Lower He-sea point for LI channel.
ST - 39 (Location)
3 cun distal to ST - 37.
0.5 cun lateral to the cranial aspect of the limb, in the cranial tibialis muscle (1 cun distal to the midpoint of the tibia.)
ST - 39 (Indications)
Lower He-sea point for the SI channel.
ST - 40 (Location)
One half the distance between the lateral malleolus and the tibial plateau (proximal aspect of the tibia.) 2 cun lateral to the cranial aspect of the limb in the groove between the cranial tibialis and long digital extensor muscles. This point is proximal to ST - 39.
Hint: Flex the limb, and the point is 1/2 way down the limb and just lateral.
ST - 40 (Indications)
Luo-connecting point to Spleen
Influential point for phlegm
ST - 41 (Location)
On the dorsum of the rear foot at the level of the hock in the depression directly on the midline. The point lies between the tendons of the long digital extensor and the cranial tibialis muscles.
ST - 41 (Indications)
Jing-river point (Fire)
Wei Syndrome (Qi deficiency)
Paresis/paralysis of the pelvic limbs (droopy feet)
ST - 42 (Location)
On the dorsal aspect of the metatarsus at the junction of the 3rd and 4th metacarpal bones of the pelvic limb.
Hint: Find the flare on the metatarsals, and go between metatarsals 3 and 4 - Feel the divot.
ST - 42 (Indications)
Yuan (Source) point
ST - 44 (Location)
In the web margin between the 3rd and 4th digits in the depression just distal and lateral to the 3rd metatarsophalangeal joint.
ST - 44 (Indications)
Ting-Spring point (Water)
ST - 45 (Location)
On the lateral side of the 3rd digit nail base.
