Hand and Palm Points 22.xx

Master Tung hand and palm points are often referred to with a numbering system that begins with 22.xx. The numbers after the “.” will vary depending on what Master Tung reference you are reading. There’s no “correct” one. There is just variation. This is a system based on channel acupuncture, on reflex zones of the body, and on imaging the body. How you interpret that may vary.

This is only a partial list of the points I use most often. If you want a comprehensive list, look at the Dr. Young books and the Dr. James Maher books. Note that not all points on the fingers and dorsal side of the hands are indicated with a number. The numbering system is used by some practitioners, but not others.
