11 points of the antitragus (M) and intertragic notch area (L): points of the head and brain regions

Figure 3.13 Points of the antitragus and intertragic notches (L and M)

Figure 3.13 Points of the antitragus and intertragic notches (L and M)

65. Dingchuan: Located at the height of the antitragus (not on the anterior surface, but exactly on the top of the antitragus).

66. Brain (also known as Subcortex): Located on the posterior wall of the antitragus. Some sources make a distinction between the Brain and the Subcortex; however, I do not. In the former case, they put the Subcortex on the posterior wall of the antitragus, and the Brain midway between the Brainstem point (point #70) and Dingchuan. This is the second point on my map that is located on the posterior aspect of an ear part.

67., 68., 69. Occiput, Temple, and Forehead: These three points are found inferior to the antitragus. They run parallel to it on a curve. The most lateral one is Occiput, Temple is in the middle, and Forehead is the most medial.

70. Brainstem: This point is located just above the antitragus area, at the intersection of the medial border of the Spleen point with the curvature above the antitragus.

71. Eye 1: Located on the medial side of the intertragic notch.

72. Eye 2: Located on the lateral side of the intertragic notch.

73. Raise Blood Pressure: This point is located below the intertragic notch between Eye 1 and Eye 2.

74. Ovaries/Testes: These points are located slightly superior to Eye 2. Some sources locate the Ovary point on the lower medial interior portion of the antitragus.

75. Endocrine: This point is located on the medial side of the intertragic notch superior to Eye 1, on the posterior wall of the medial border of the intertragic notch. This is the third and final point on my map that is not on the anterior surface of the ear.
