The Kidney Divergent Channel (zu shao yin jing bie)

The Kidney Divergent Channel (zu shao yin jing bie)

The Kidney divergent channel separates from the Kidney primary
channel in the popliteal fossa at ➞KID-10 (yinggu). It
➡ meets ➞ BL-40 (weizhong) in the popliteal fossa
➡ ascends to ➞BL-36 (chengfu) in the centre of the gluteal crease
➡ penetrates the anus and reaches the Kidney (shen) and the
Bladder (pangguang)
➡ ascends to ➞ BL-23 (shenshu) at the level of the lower border
of the spinous process of L2, where it also meets the dai
mai, following it round the waist to the abdomen
➡ ascends lateral to the midline to the infraclavicular fossa
➡ reaches the neck at ➞ Ren-23 (liangquan)
➡ emerges at the nape of the neck at ➞BL-10 (tianzhu) and converges
with the Bladder primary channel and the Bladder divergent
channel to form one of the 6 he-confluences (here: BL/KID
as first confluence ➞1.3).
Clinical importance
● Strengthens the relationship between the Kidneys and the
Bladder (zangfu-Organ systems). Points on the Kidney primary
channel can therefore be used for disorders of the Bladder,
and vice versa points on the Bladder primary channel can
treat disorders of the Kidneys.
● Through the connection with the dai mai, KID points can be
used for disorders of the dai mai.
● Kidney Qi and Essence (jing) are sent to the Brain through the
Kidney divergent channel via the spinal canal, thus strengthening
the connection between the Kidneys, the Marrow and
the Brain.
● Supports the connection to the tongue.
