This chapter describes in detail the location, energetic function, and special features of each point in six principal Yin Channels: Heart, Lungs, Pericardium, Liver, Spleen, and Kidney. It emphasizes that the unique features of each point come from their association with specific organs and five elements, in addition to its connection with other energy channels. The clinical indications for mental and physical dysfunctions due to channel blockages and organ energetic imbalance are only examples of the clinical use of these points. The reader should be able to expand his or her usage based on the features and functions of these points.
