( G.B.-42 Earth Five Meetings DIWUHUI - Acupuncture Points ) Between the 4th and 5th metatarsal bones, proximal to the metatarsophalangeal joints and medial to the tendon of the extensor digitorum longus muscle.
How to find
From the space between the 4th and 5th toes, palpate towards the ankle. Locate G.B.-42 in the groove between the two bones, proximal to the metatarsophalangeal joints (and proximal to the heads of the two metatarsal bones). Or: Ask the patient to abduct their toes so that the branch of the tendon of the extensor digitorum longus muscle extending to the little toe becomes more pronounced. Then palpate from the space between the toes along the groove between the 4th and 5th metatarsal bones from distal to proximal to where the tendon crosses the groove. G.B.- 42 is located medial (or anterior) to the tendon.
➞ G.B.-41 is located lateral (or posterior) to the tendon when continuing to palpate along the groove. ➞ BL-65 is located approximately on the same level on the lateral border of the foot, proximal to the head of the 5th metatarsal bone.
