Location
[BL-65 Restraining Bone SHUGU - Acupuncture Points] On the lateral aspect of the foot, in the depression proximal to the head of the 5th metatarsal bone.
How to find
When palpating along the bony structures on the lateral aspect of

the midpoint of the foot. This is the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal
bone. Distal to it (towards the toes), you can feel a further bony
structure, the head of the 5th metatarsal bone. Directly proximal to
it, at the border of the ‘red and white’ skin (border dorsum/sole of
the foot), BL-65 can be palpated in a depression. ➞ BL-66 is
located in a depression distal to the head of the 5th metatarsal bone
(distal to the metatarsophalangeal joint), at the junction of the base
and the shaft of the proximal phalanx of the little toe.
SP-3 is located in a comparable position on the medial aspect
of the foot (proximal to the head of the 1st metatarsal bone).
