Energy Medicine for Lung Health

Lung 7 is one of the most powerful points on the lung meridian.

It is a popular acupuncture point to use for stopping a persistent cough and relieving a sore throat.  Besides treating those symptoms, LU 7 is often used to treat conditions related to the head and neck, such as headaches, migraines, stiff neck, facial paralysis, and toothache.

LU 7 is considered to be the “command point” of the head and neck and is also used to improve circulation in the brain and stimulate memory.

This acupuncture point is located above the wrist on the inside of the arm below the thumb.  To find this point, interlock your thumb and index finger of one hand with those of the other, the point lies on the edge of the index finger, in the depression between the sinew and the bone. 

Stimulate this point on both hands with the tip of your index finger for approximately 30 seconds or until your cough subsides.
