Hello All. I've read about a lot of people trying to find a good way to pinpoint ST5. I threw something together from my research which I believe is the proper location and best way to find it.

You can view the pdf here -

The spot is a place where both a nerve and an artery cross.

I'd like your feedback on this. I won't be leaving this pdf up for more than a few days so it doesn't eat up my bandwidth.

Really nice charts. Did you make them? I find St 5 to be easy to find. I just tell people to feel for the groove on the under side of the jaw about half way back.
The older I get, the better I was!

Hello UD,

Yes, I threw that together. Thanks for the feedback! What I'd like to do is eventually make a sheet for each of the points and use some slightly better diagrams.

Prob wont help, but I own the 1st ed. hardback published by the Shanghai school of OM and has multiple arm length pull-out acu points, both traditional and "newly discovered" (keep in mind it is from the early 70'). Also a description of use of each point, ~1000pgs

If this would be of benefit, let me know...I just dont know how to do the web link 'thing'.

-Karl. Peace.
do not try to spork the post, for that is impossible, only realize there is no post to spork
