Ling Gu Da Bai
Master Tung’s Ling Gu Da Bai (灵骨大白) 22.04 -22.05
Two really great points for immediate relief of lower back pain. I learned about these points from Dr. Tan’s balance method seminar a few years ago.
Located between the index and thumb between the first and second metacarpal bones. Ling Gu is more like a high LI4 & Da Bai is closer to Li3 in TCM.
Location: Lock fingers in a grip to locate the point in the depression 0.5 cun proximal to the junction between the 1st and 2nd metacarpal bones. (Young, 2008.)
Location: between the index and thumb, the 1st and 2nd metacarpal bones, 1.2 cun from Da Bai. (Young, 2008.)
This combo definitely has great effects for sciatica, lower back, and variety of different diseases. Because these points are located on the Yang ming channel (yang ming is abundant in qi and blood,) they are able get quite immediate effective result for many patients.
The Chinese character “bai” in Da bai translates to “Big White” which relates to lung because in TCM white is the color representing the lung. Therefore Da Bai treats respiratory diseases.
Ling Gu in Chinese translates to “Adroit Bone,” which treats lower back pain and Kidney diseases since Bone pertains to Kidney in TCM.
There are two dozen more reasons why these work but all I know is that they work.
Master Tung came from one of the most prestigous acupuncture familes in Taiwan. This style of acupuncture is renowned for having fast and instantaneous results. If you are an acupuncturist and getting crap results at best with TCM, you should really look into Master Tung points.
