Point Prescriptions

Anyone with training in TCM will be able to select points on which to apply the blends. However we do give a basic outline of suggested points. When we send patients home with a blend, we generally don’t give them points on the back, as those points can be difficult to reach and locate. We’ll mainly go with yuan source points and areas that are easy to find. Du 4 is an exception to this rule, as it is a cardinal point for tonifying yang. The oils do not have to be applied exactly on the point, they can be spread over the general area of the point. As long as that general area includes the point itself, this is usually fine.
