( G.B.-37 Bright Light GUANGMING - Acupuncture Points ) 5 cun proximal to the highest prominence of the lateral malleolus, on the anterior border of the fibula, between the peroneus longus and extensor digitorum longus muscles.
How to find
Quick method: Spreading hands technique (➞2.3.3): Place the little fingers on ➞ G.B.-34 (in the depression anterior and inferior to the head of the fibula) and the highest prominence of the lateral malleolus (➞ 3.6.2). This distance is 14 cun. From the midpoint of this distance, measure 2 cun in a distal direction and locate G.B.-37 on this level in a depression on the anterior border of the fibula. This depression is located 5 cun proximal to the prominence of the lateral malleolus (the width of 1 hand and 2 thumbs). For orientation: The borders of the fibula are deep to the peroneus brevis muscle and are often not easily palpable. For this reason, it is suggested to palpate the anterior border of the fibula just superior to the ankle and then locate the point on an imaginary line running to the head of the fibula.
