Acu Anatomy- Week 1

Aanatomy of Upper Extremities Points 1-36

With the upper arm abducted, in the center of the axilla, medial side of axillary artery HT-1
Beware axillary artery!! Tip: Use one finger to find the axillary A., then insert needle JUST MEDIAL and POSTERIOR to it. HT-1
First dimple (more anterior) of the two on shoulder when arm is abducted at shoulder height. "Antero-inferior to acromion, upper portion of m. deltoideus." LI-15
Second dimple (more posterior) of the two on shoulder when arm is abducted at shoulder height. "With arm abducted, poster and inferior to acromion, in depression about 1 cun posterior to LI-15." SJ-14
On a line connecting LI-11 and LI-15, 3 cun above LI-11. "Superior to the lateral epicondyle of the humerus." LI-13
Avoid puncturing Radial (collateral) artery LI-13
(With elbow flexed,) in depression 1 cun superior to olecranon SJ-10
Cubital crease, radial (lateral) side of tendon of biceps brachii. HAND OPEN and elbow slightly flexed. SLIGHTLY LATERAL to the tendon rather than immediately adjacent to it. LU-5
Cubital crease: in depression between MEDIAL end of TCC and MEDIAL epicondyle of humerus-- with elbow flexed into right angle. HT-3
On transverse cubital crease, ULNAR SIDE of m. bicpes brachii PC-3
Avoid puncturing brachial artery PC-3
With elbow flexed, in depression between olecranon of ulna and medial epicondyle of humerus. SI-8
Palmar (radial/flexor) aspect of forearm, on LU-5 (cubital crease)-LU-9 (wrist crease) line, 7 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist. THERE IS A PALPABLE DEPRESSION. (This point often bleeds.) LU-6
5 cun (2-1-2) above transverse crease of the wrist, on the PC3-PC7 line, between tendons of palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis. PC-4
3 cun (2-1) above the transverse crease of the wrist, between tendons of palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis. PC-5
3 cun above SJ-4, between radius and ulna, on the radial side of extensor digitorum. SJ-6
Do not puncture radial nerve. LI-11
Musculature: Brachioradialis, Flexor carpi radialis, Pronator teres, Extensor carpi radialis brevis & longus LU-6
The two points were admonition is "Beware Radial Nerve" LI-11 (which doesn't seem to be much of a risk) and LU-5
Three points on "medial" (ventral/yin) cubital crease-- and their anatomical descriptions. From inside to out HT-3 ("Depression between medial end of TCC and medial epicondyle of humerus"), PC-3 (TCC, ulnar side of mBB), LU-5 (TCC, radial side of mBB- slightly LATERAL to tendon).
Three points on "lateral" (dorsal/yang) cubital crease area (give or take)-- and their anatomical descriptions. LI-11 (Depression at LATERAL end of TCC, "midway between LU-5 and the lateral epicondyle of humerus"), SI-8 (with elbow flexed, "depression between olecranon (of ulna) and medial epicondyle of humerus"), SJ-10 ("1 cun superior to olecranon")

Muscles (plus tendon and an aponeurosis...) for LU-5 Tendon of biceps brachii, bicipital aponeurosis, brachioradialis, brachialis
Muscles for HT-3 Pronator teres, brachialis
Muscles (and tendon) for PC-3 Tendon of biceps brachii, m. brachii, m. brachialis
Muscles for SI-8 (Same as PC-3?? Tendon of biceps brachii, m. brachii, m. brachialis)
Muscles for LU-6 Brachioradialis, Flexor carpi radialis, Pronator teress, Extensor carpi radialis BREVIS & LONGUS
Muscles for PC-4 Flexor carpi radialis, m. flexor digitorum superficialis & profundus, palmar side of anterior interosseus membrane
Muscles for PC-5 Tendons of flexor carpi radialis and palmaris longus m. flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus, pronator quadratus m. anterior interosseous membrane
Muscles for SJ-6 Extensor digiti minimi, extensor pollicis longus, anterior interosseous membrane
