1 The Channel Colin Chan

2 THE LUNG CHANNEL OF HAND-TAIYIN PART 1 Copy right: Colin Chan

3 General Information of the Lung (TCM) 1.It is located in the chest, the highest among the internal organs, opening to the nose. Physiological characteristics of the lung (TCM) 1.A “ Florid Canopy” 肺为华盖 2.A “ Delicate” organ 肺为娇脏 Copy right: Colin Chan

4 Physiological functions of the lung (TCM) 1.Domination of Qi 肺主气, 司呼吸 2.Domination of dispersing and depurative descending function 肺主宣发 / 肃降 Relationship of the lung to other organs (TCM) 1.Co-related with the skin and hair 肺外合皮毛 2.Opening into the nose 肺开窍于鼻 3.Throat as a gateway of the lung 喉为肺之门户 4.Internally-Externally related to the Large Intestine 肺与大肠相表理 5.Color indicated: white Copy right: Colin Chan

5 The Lung Channel of Hand-Taiyin There are 11 acupoints in the surface pathway of the lung channel. The inner pathway begins in the middle energizer and descends the spine in order to connect with the large intestine. The return pathway passes through the cardiac orifice of the stomach and traverses the diaphragm. The channel penetrates the lung, the organ which belongs to it. The pathway continue to ascends to the trachea and connects with the larynx and the pharynx, the channel leaves the chest cavity beneath the clavicle at point LU 1. The surface pathway of the lung channel passes over the outer aspect of the inner upper arm to the elbow and runs over the radial margin of the palmer aspect of the forearm and the thumb to the radial side of the thumbnail. Route Copy right: Colin Chan

6 The branch emerges posterior to the wrist (styloid process) and runs along the dorsum of the hand to the radial aspect of the tip of the index finger where it connects to the Large Intestine channel. Route-Branch 7 Copy right: Colin Chan

7 1.Organ syndrome Lung Congestions, Dyspnea, cough, SOB, pain in the Quepen ST 12 area, fever with chills, spontaneous perspiration. 2.Meridian syndrome Pain and cold along the anterior border of the medial aspect of the arm, pain and swelling of the throat. 3.Excess in Qi: Burning sensation on the palm and pain in shoulder and back. 4.Deficient in Qi: Pain and cold feeling in the shoulder and back. Principal Syndrome Copy right: Colin Chan

8 Location : Upper lateral chest, acupoint is located in the 1 st intercostals space, 6 cun from the anterior midline, 1 cun below LU 2 Yunmen Classification: Front-Mu point of the lung and Crossing point of the LU and SP channels Approach: oblique/horizontal insertion technique, cun towards the lateral side of the chest, moxa Commonly used acupoint LU 1 Zhongfu 中府 中为中焦, 府为汇聚 肺经起于中焦, 而肺与脾经交会 于此, 故为中府 Copy right: Colin Chan

9 Location : On the transverse crease of the elbow, acupoint is located on the radial depression of the tendon of m. biceps brachii when the elbow is slightly bent Classification: He-Sea point Approach: perpendicular insertion technique, cun Commonly used acupoint LU 5 Chize 尺泽 尺为肘, 腕至肘为一尺. 泽为水泽, 水穿之处. 肺经之气归于此, 故为尺泽 Copy right: Colin Chan

10 Location : On the palmer side and radial aspect of the forearm acupoint is located on the line joining LU 5 Chize 尺泽 and LU 9 Taiyuan 太渊, 7 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist Classification: Xi-Cleft point Approach: perpendicular insertion technique, cun Commonly used acupoint 孔为寥, 最为深, 此穴为肺经之气 血深聚之处, 故为孔最 LU 6 Kongzui 孔最 Copy right: Colin Chan

11 Location : On the palmer side and radial aspect of the forearm acupoint is located superior to the styloid process of the radius, 1.5 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist between the brachioradialis and the abductor pollicis longus of the thumb Classification: Luo-Connecting point, one of the 8 confluent point (linking with the Conception Vessel 通任脉 ) Approach: oblique insertion (towards elbow) technique, cun Commonly used acupoint 列为分, 缺为破. 肺为华盖天庭, 肺经于此分走大肠, 华盖分列, 故为列缺 LU 7 Lieque 列缺 Copy right: Colin Chan

12 The Collateral route of LU channel Lie Que: Is assigned as the Luo-Connecting point Its rouite as a collateral starts parallel between the tendons of M. bronchoradialis and m. abductor polliciis longus and runs parallel with the LU channel into the hand and spreads over the dorsal aspect to link with…. The Large Intestine channel (according to the inter-external related theory) and (continuation flow of Qi in sequence as according to the continuation flow of the channel system). (The LI channel runs across the dorsal region of the Hand) LU 7 Lieque 列缺 Copy right: Colin Chan

13 Location : On the palmer side and radial aspect of the forearm, acupoint is located in the depression between the styloid process of the radius and the radial artery,1.0 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist Classification: Jing-River point Approach: Perpendicular insertion technique, cun, do not moxa Commonly used acupoint 经, 动而不居 ; 渠, 指沟溪. 是肺经之经气经过的冲渠要道 穴在桡谷茎突内侧与桡动脉之间, 形长如沟, 故为经渠 LU 8 Jingqu 经渠 Copy right: Colin Chan

14 Location : On the radial aspect of the transverse crease of the wrist acupoint is located in the depression, on the lateral (ulnar) side of the radial artery Classification: Yuan-Source/Shu-Stream point and one of the 8 Influential point (Vessel Convergence 脉会 ) Approach: Perpendicular insertion technique, cun Commonly used acupoint 太为大, 渊为深潭. 此穴为肺之原, 脉之本, 气血旺盛 如深渊 故为太渊 LU 9 Taiyuan 太渊 Copy right: Colin Chan

15 Location : On the palm, acupoint is located on the midpoint of the 1 st metarcarpal bone, at the junction of the red and white skin Classification: Ying-Spring point Approach: perpendicular insertion technique, cun Commonly used acupoint 鱼为鱼腹, 际为边际, 穴在姆指后 掌内侧处, 肌丰如鱼腹, 也同时在鱼腹边侧, 故为鱼际 LU 10 Yuji 鱼际 Copy right: Colin Chan

16 Location : On the radial aspect of the thumb, 0.1 cun from the corner of the nail Classification: Jing-Well point Approach: oblique (superficial) insertion technique, 0.1 cun upwards or prick to bleed Commonly used acupoint 少为小, 肺属金, 在音为商. 肺经指末气弱小 故为少商 LU 11 Shaoshang 少商 Copy right: Colin Chan
