That’s the Chinese word for it, it means Great Abyss , Supreme Abyss. This point is the ninth on the Lung Channel. Remember, we said the Lung Channel goes like that traces down arm. If you can see right.
Here points to wrist there’s where the point is. The point is between the little tendon of the thumb when you wiggle the thumb and the artery. It’s right there in between, don’t want to pop the artery, that would be bad! So, you do the acupuncture point right there in between, in that little crevice. This point treats asthma, coughing, wheezing. It treats stomach upset, any kind of stomach problem stomach, not guts, stomach. Points to abdomen. It treats wrist pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis. So, this point is very useful for any kind of respiratory problem, and for a few types.
