77.18 Shen Guan and
Three Emperors – Master Kidney Point
By Susan Johnson, L.Ac.
“Shen Guan” means Kidney Gate. This is Dr. Tung’s master Kidney point (#77.18), and there is no more powerful point for the Kidney. It tonifies not only the Kidney, but also the Spleen and the Yin, and benefits Qi. It connects UB 23 and Ren 4, and this internal pathway between the Kidney back Shu and front Mu points is what makes it such a powerful point for the Kidneys. It addresses Kidney deficiency and all accompanying signs and symptoms.

Eastern Currents Learning offers a comprehensive online series of courses that encompasses the full scope of Master Tung’s material as taught by Susan Johnson, internationally recognized teacher of Master Tung’s Style Acupuncture.
