TE 17 Acupuncture Point

TE 17 Acupuncture Point is called as Yi Feng. Yi means Shielding. Feng means Pathogenic Wind. This point is behind the earlobe and is the place for shielding off the pathogenic wind.

The Triple Burner Meridian begins at the outer tip of the ring finger and goes along the back of the hand, wrist, forearm and upper arm, until it reaches the shoulder region where it branches off. One branch travels internally into the chest and passes through the pericardium and diaphragm uniting the upper, middle and lower burner (triple burner). The other branch runs externally up the side of the neck, circles the ear and face, and finally ends at the outer end of the eyebrow where it connects with the Gall Bladder Meridian.

The Triple Energiser (also referred to as San Jiao, Triple Burner, Triple Heater and Triple Warmer in some texts) Channel is a yang channel that consists of 23 points. It begins at the outer tip of the ring finger and goes along the back of the hand, wrist, forearm and upper arm, until it reaches the shoulder region. There it runs up the side of the neck, circles the ear and face, and finally ends at the outer end of the eyebrow where it connects with the Gall Bladder Meridian. The Triple Energiser channel has two main points most commonly used in the management of musculoskeletal pain, these are TE 5 proximal to the wrist on the poster aspect of the forearm and TE 14 which is located in the posterior “eye of the shoulder.”
