How to find
As the location of the eyebrow can vary, the medial canthus of
the eye should be used for reference (➞ BL-1). Palpate for a
generally pressure-sensitive depression in this area of the orbital
ridge. Caution: According to Sobotta, except in rare cases, BL-2
is not located on the supraorbital foramen (mainly located more
laterally), but in the area where the supratrochlear artery and the
supraorbital nerve emerge (frontal notch).
➞ BL-1 is located inferior to BL-2.
Needling
0.3–0.5 cun obliquely from lateral to medial or transversely
(subcutaneously) in the direction of the disorder. Caution: Branches
of the frontal nerve, facial nerve, blood vessels! According to the
majority of authors, moxibustion is contraindicted. Considered a
less risky alternative to ➞ BL-1.
