How to find
First, locate the anterior hairline (➞ 3.1.1) and, from there, palpate 0.5 cun in a superior direction. There, locate Du-24 on the midline. For reference: The distance from the anterior hairline to ➞ Du-20 (at the junction of the vertical midline and a line connecting the apices of the ears) is 5 cun.
Located on the same level (0.5 cun superior to the anterior hairline) are ➞ BL-3/BL-4/G.B.-15/G.B.-13 (superior to the inner canthus of the eye/1.5 cun lateral to the midline/on the pupil line or 2.25 cun lateral to the midline/3 cun lateral to the midline).
These distances refer to the proportional cun distance (➞ 2.2) between Du-24 and ➞ ST-8 (on the corner of the forehead), which equals 4.5 cun (1.5 cun lateral to the midline).
Transversely (subcutaneously) 0.3–0.5 cun. Moxibustion possible.
