( LU-7 Broken Sequence LIEQUE - Acupuncture Points ) On the radial aspect of the forearm, directly above the styloid process of the radius, approximately 1.5 cun proximal to the wrist joint space (wrist crease) in a V-shaped groove.
How to find
Place the palpating forefinger on the anatomical snuffbox (➞ L.I.-5). From there, glide proximally over the styloid process of the radius and locate LU-7 where the finger can palpate a cleft between two tendons (brachioradialis/abductor pollicis longus). Or: ‘Tiger mouth grip’ (➞ Fig. 2.6): spread the thumb and forefinger of both hands, crossing them so that the forefinger of one hand comes to rest on the styloid process of the other, but avoiding bending the wrist. LU-7 is located directly below the tip of the forefinger in a V-shaped groove
Lift the skin above the styloid process by pinching it. Insert the needle 0.5–1 cun obliquely and proximally (reducing) or distally (tonifying). Caution: Cephalic vein.
