Location
[KID-6 Shining Sea ZHAOHAI - Acupuncture Points] Approximately 1 cun inferior to the highest prominence of the
medial malleolus, over the joint space between the talus and the
calcaneus.
How to find
From the highest prominence of the medial malleolus (➞ 3.6.2),
palpate distally, until the palpating finger can feel the depression of
the joint space between the talus and the calcaneus. (KID-6 is often
located between the tendons of the tibialis and flexor digitorum
longus muscles.) Directly distal to this point, you can palpate a
small bony prominence, the sustentaculum tali. With the patient’s
foot in a supinated position, a visible skin crease forms on the level
of the point. Note: There are several variations regarding the exact
location of this point. However, the determining aspect for its location
is not the cun measurement but the joint space below the
prominence.
Needling
0.3–0.5 cun vertically or obliquely in a proximal direction. The
needle may reach the deltoid ligament.
