Master Tung’s acupuncture point 11.08 Zhi wu jin【指五金】 and Zhi qian Jin 【指千金】
11.08 is a combination of three points:
Zhi wu jin “Finger five metal” is a distal point.
Zhi qian Jin “Finger thousand metal” is a two set point more proximally.
The metal aspect of the name indicates that this point is regulating the lung and the intestines.
Location: A three point unit. On the dorsal aspect of the index finger, at the first phalange along the ulnar border between the red and white skin. Divide the proximal phalange into four parts, the points will be at the junctions of the quarters. The distal is Zhi wu jin, and the two proximal are Zhi qian Jin.
Some doctors use two points instead of three. They divide the proximal phalange into thirds and locate the points at the 1/3 and 2/3 junctions.
Needle: 0.2-0.5 cun.
