Toe Acupoints

Acupoints on the Toes


Acupoints on the toes

Treat all six leg meridians quickly, with these toe acupoints!

All of the meridians on the leg have either begin or end on the toes (except for the Kidney located on the sole of the foot).

Regardless of the type of massage you are practicing, integrating meridian massage is simple!  By applying pressure to each of these toe acupoints you activate all six meridians quickly and effectively.

5 Element Yin and Yang Meridian Pairs

In addition to opening the energy in the legs, working on these points supports three of the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine. For every Element in the Chinese Medical system, there are two meridians, one Yin and one Yang. On the foot we have the following elements and pairs:

Earth
Yin Meridian – Spleen
Yang Meridian – Stomach

Wood
Yin Meridian – Liver
Yang Meridian – Gallbladder

Water
Yin Meridian – Kidney
Yang Meridian – Bladder

    So there are 2 points on the big toe, and no point on the middle toe? That seems odd.

      Jenny,

      Yes, strange but true! There is plenty to contemplate, even with just these six points (and there are over 350 points).
