COMMENTARY

Xiaguan ST-7 is an important and commonly used point


for the treatment of local disorders affecting the ear (deafness, tinnitus, pain and discharge), cheek (pain and
swelling), teeth (toothache, swelling and pain of the gum)
and upper jaw (lockjaw and dislocation). Its ability to treat
ear disorders is explained both by its location, and by the
fact that the Gall Bladder channel, which enters the ear,
meets with the Stomach channel at this point.
In the treatment of facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia
Xiaguan ST-7 is sometimes needled 0.5 cun anterior to its
textbook location.
COMBINATIONS

mouth open
condyloid process

LOCATION NOTE

Although this point is needled with the mouth closed, it is


helpful to ask the patient to open the mouth to better
locate the condyloid process. If the finger rests on the
condyloid process when the mouth is open, it will fall into
Xiaguan ST-7 when the mouth is closed.
NEEDLING

i. Perpendicular insertion slightly inferiorly 0.5 to 1 cun; ii.


Transverse insertion to join with such points as Tinggong
SI-19, Jiache ST-6, Quanliao SI-18 etc. for diseases of the
ear, teeth, face and jaw.
