Combined use with ChizeLU5 (Chize (LU5) He-Sea Point) and ZusanliST36 (Zusanli (ST 36) He-Sea Point) for treatment of tracheitis; with TianzongSI11 (Tianzong (SI 11)) for treatment of mastitis; and with Zhongfu (LU1), ZhourongSP20 (Zhourong (SP20)) and ChizeLU5 (LU5) for treatment of cough with bloody sputum.
Insert the needle obliquely 0.5-0.8 cun deep; needling response: local sensation of distension and soreness; moxibustion: using 3-5 moxa-cones, or mild moxibustion for 15 min.
