Jing-Well point of the Urinary Bladder Meridian


BL 67 is the point to turn the fetus. Because this point is the place where the UB meridian and Kidney meridian connect, it can regulate the Kidney and tonify Qi. If the Kidney Qi is not sufficient, it is difficult to maintain the fetus in the correct position. The deficiency of Kidney Qi also causes a lack of strength, making the labor difficult. BL 67 regulates and tonifies Kidney Qi. Jing-Well points are where the qi bubbles up. Jing-Well points are indicated to revive consciousness. Jing-Well points are known to treat fullness below the Heart and clear Heat.
