▪️Wrist-Ankle acupuncture is a method of acupuncture that was developed in the 1960’s by Zhang Xinshu. It is a system that divides the body into upper and lower at the diaphragm, and classified manifestations of disease into 6 bilateral, longitudinal sections. There are 6 bilateral points on the wrist that treat diseases in the upper part of the body, and 6 bilateral points on the ankle that treat diseases in the lower part of the body.
▪️The points pictured are Lower 5, and Lower 6, as well as UB60. The combination on these points can treat a wide variety of disorders including sprained lateral ligament of the ankle, tightness or pain in the peroneus muscle, fractures of the fibula, lateral meniscus tear, pain in the TFL, sacro-illium pain, spinal pain, herniated disc, lumbago, arthritis of the lumbar vertebrae, lumbar nerve impingement, constipation, and hemorrhoids. #vail #vaillive #vaildaily #eaglecounty #vailacupuncture #eaglecountyhealth #traditionalchinesemedicine #vailvalley
