Tung Points for Heel & Achilles Pain: Mu Guan Gu Guan (木关骨关)


Mu Guan & Gu Guan, go together like peanut butter and jelly. My two new best friends for heel pain. Also great for menstrual cramps.

Palm of the hand mirrors the heel and Achilles.
Location: Ashi points just off of the pisiform bone and scaphoid bone.

The first time I used it was with a patient she had her been having achilles heel pain for over two months. It was taped up forever and just was not getting better with the physio. We took care of her other issues and at the end of the treatment I threw mu guan gu guan in there for kicks. Within 5 seconds after the insertion of both needles the heel pain was gone and never came back. Acupuncture rocks. true story.
