Location
[(BL-13) Lung Shu FEISHU - Acupuncture Points] 1.5 cun lateral to the posterior midline, on the level of the lower  border of the spinous process of the 3rd thoracic vertebra (T3).
How to find
First, locate the spinous process of C7 (➞ 3.4.1). From there,
count down three spinous processes to the lower border of the
spinous process of the T3. Measure 1.5 cun laterally to locate
BL-13 on the highest point of the paraspinal musculature. Or:
With the patient seated and their arms hanging down, the spinous
process of the T3 is generally on the level of the medial end
of the scapular spine (➞ 3.4.2). Locate BL-13 1.5 cun lateral to
the midline.
Located on the same level are ➞ Du-12 (on the midline),
a point of ➞ Ex-B-2 (0.5 cun lateral to the midline) and BL-42
(3 cun lateral to the midline).
Needling
0.5–1 cun obliquely towards the spine. In clinical practice, this
point is often needled transversely (subcutaneously) towards the
spine. This allows the patient to lie in a supine position during
needle retention (the needles can be secured with tape). Caution:
Pneumothorax. For chronic Lung Qi deficiency without Heat
signs, use moxibustion.
