Location

How to find
From the upper border of the pubic symphysis, measure 2.5 cun in a lateral and 1 cun in an inferior direction. In this area, you can palpate the pulse of the femoral artery. LIV-12 is located medial to the pulsating of the artery. As the femoral vein also runs medial to the artery, LIV-12 should be needled in a medial direction, at least 1 fingerbreadth from the artery.
ST-30 is located 1 cun superior and 0.5 cun medial to LIV-12.
Needling
Slightly obliquely 0.5–0.8 cun. Caution: Femoral artery/vein. The femoral vein is located medial to the artery and is approximately the breadth of a finger.
