Location
[BL-63 Golden Gate JINMEN - Acupuncture Points] On the lateral aspect of the foot, proximal to the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal bone, in a depression anterior and inferior to ➞ BL-62 between the calcaneus and the cuboid bone. Note: Some authors locate BL-63 between the cuboid bone and the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal bone (see figure on p. 311); the more tender point should be selected.
How to find
When palpating along the lateral aspect of the foot on the level
of the border of the ‘red and white’ skin, a bony structure can be
felt approximately at the midpoint of the foot. This is the
tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal point (➞3.6.2). Slightly proximal
to it (towards the heel), you can palpate a depression between
the calcaneus and the cuboid bone. There, locate BL-63.
BL-64 is located distal (towards the toes) to the tuberosity of
the 5th metatarsal bone.
