Note: Although we list several points that are beneficial, you do not have to use all these points; use l or 2 at your convenience.
1. (Li 4, Adjoining Valley) This is one of the most important points in Acupuncture and Acupressure. It is useful in relieving pain and circulating the chi.
Caution: Pregnant women should not press this point.
2. (St 36, Three Mile Foot).
3. (Kd 3, Supreme Stream) Disorders of the bone and cartilage are related to the Kidney energy in traditional Chinese medicine. That's why, for osteoarthritis (which is a degenerative condition), it is beneficial to strengthen the Kidney energy. Kd 3 is considered the source point of the Kidney meridian.
4. (B 23, Associated point of Kidney) This point in combination with Kd 3 greatly strengthens Kidney chi.
