13 points of the cavum concha (H): organs of the thoracic region

35. Mouth: This area curves like a smile to parallel the lateral border of the external auditory meatus.

36. Heart: Located at the deepest point of the cavum concha, at the level of the center of the Mouth point. Eyeball this area, put the probe in the cavum concha, and then search with the probe for the deepest point.

37. Trachea: A narrow horizontal area that starts at the center of the Mouth point and extends to the Heart point.

38. Upper Lung: Located in the depression above the Heart point. Put the ear probe in the Heart point, and then slide slightly above it until the probe falls into a depression. The Upper Lung point is in the depression.

39. Lower Lung: Located in the depression below the Heart point. Put the probe on the Heart point, and then slide slightly below it until the probe falls into a depression. The Lower Lung point is in the depression.

40. Esophagus: Take the length of the distance from the upper curvature of the Mouth point to the lateral end of the lower border of the crus of the helix. Divide this distance in half. The most medial half is the Esophagus area.

41. Cardiac Sphincter: See the location of point 40. The half that is lateral to the Esophagus point is the Cardiac sphincter area.

42. Stomach: The Stomach point is a round area that begins at the end of the crus of the helix and extends halfway across the distance formed by the end of the crus and the medial border of the lower antihelix crus. Because pathology in the Stomach area can change the shape of the Stomach point (discussed in Chapter 7), we need to know exactly where it ends in order to precisely locate the point.The best way to locate the Stomach point is as follows. Place the ear probe on the Diaphragm point (point B 56), and then slide off the crus of the helix. The probe will fall into a little notch that can be felt with the probe. That notch is the beginning of the Stomach area. The Stomach area, in the shape of a semicircle, extends halfway across the distance from this notch to the medial border of the lower antihelix crus.

43. Liver: The Liver comprises the second half of the distance from the Stomach point to the medial border of the lower antihelix crus. The area is triangular in shape. Its superior border is formed by a 45-degree angle from the upper border of the Stomach point to the medial border of the lower antihelix crus. The Liver’s lower border is level with the lower border of the crus of the helix.

44. Hepatitis: This point is an area found within the Liver area, close to the lateral curvature of the Stomach.

45. Relax Muscle: This point is also within the Liver area. It lies in a roughly circular area below the superior border of the Liver area.

46. Spleen: This point is a large area. First locate the midpoint of the lower border of the Liver. Now extend a line vertically downward to where the line intersects with the curvature superior to the antitragus. The area lateral to the line is the Spleen area.

47. Sanjiao (Triple Warmer): This point is located in the deepest area of the cavum concha, at the level of the intertragic notch. To locate this point, “look” through the intertragic notch as if it were a small window. Then place the ear probe within it, and feel for the deepest depression. That is the Sanjiao point.
