How to find
From the highest prominence of the lateral malleolus (➞ 3.6.2), measure 3 cun (1 handbreadth) in a proximal direction and locate G.B.-39 in a depression on the anterior border of the fibula. According to some authors, it is located between the posterior border of the fibula and the tendons of the peroneus longus and brevis musles. When in doubt, choose the more pressuresensitive point.
Located on the same level but 3 cun proximal to ➞ BL-60 (depression between the malleolus and the Achilles tendon) is ➞BL-59. In a comparable position but on the medial aspect of the leg is ➞ SP-6 (3 cun proximal to the highest prominence of the medial malleolus, meeting point of the three leg Yin channels).
