LU7 is a main point for releasing the exterior of Wind-Cold and Wind-Heat. The respective Yin and Yang meridians are internally-externally related by Luo-Connecting points. Luo-Connecting points of one meridian can communicate with two meridians. They treat diseases of the collaterals and can be used to treat chronic diseases, especially chronic diseases of the Zang-Fu organs. Clinically, Luo-Connecting points are often combined with Yuan-Source points in the treatment of diseases.
