Shen Guan or Kidney Gate 77.xx (Young)

Location - Shen Guan or Kidney Gate - Master Tung Point1.5 cun distal to Spleen 9.
Dr. Wei Cheih-Young recommends stacking your index, middle, and ring fingertips together and using that as your measure distal to Sp 9. But even then, I recommend you feel very lightly about this distance below Sp 9 for a small depression in the skin and locate the point there.

Best Clinical Use

  • This is the go-to point for shoulder pain.


Dr. Robert Chu recommends this point as the go-to for shoulder pain. I often needle Ling Gu and Da Bai on the unaffected side then add this point for shoulder pain.
