Lung 1 (V)

Locating Lu 1

Lung 1; On the lateral aspect of the chest, in the first intercostal space 6 cun lateral to the midline, 1 cun inferior and slightly lateral to Lu2.

Mu/Alarm point. If it is sensitive this suggests soe kind of Lung pathology.

The point can be needled perpendicularly up to 0.5 cun which is what we normally do. Can also be needled hedially along the intercostal space.

used in Liv 14/Lu 1 protocol to free a block, has a great effect to “unbind the chest” we will discuss this again when we discuss blocks.
