Eight Pathogens

Posted Jun 13 2011 5:19pm

Location Point: these 8 points lie in the depressions between the metacarpal heads, easier to find it when hand is made into a fist.

BaiXie are one of the many points of the upper extremity that does not pertain within the meridians, therefore a lot of times are ignored by practitioners. These eight points, located right between the protruding bones are extremely useful in all acute and chronic ailments that are anything caused by wind-heat.

Usage in Acupuncture

  1. Reduce inflammation of the upper extremity: fever, throbbing headache, toothache, sore throat, itchy watery eyes, etc.
  2. Induce the flow and movement of the local area, reducing numbness, stiffness, and swelling of the fingers and hand.
  3. Reduce swelling of the upper extremity.

BaXie compliments with other points to treat the following:

  1. Fever
  2. Swelling of the upper body
  3. Toothache
  4. Immobility of the local area, neurological-induced or arthritis
