Applied Kinesiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine or Acupuncture

More Clinical Wisdom (about Acupuncture and AK) offered by Dr. Goodheart in his Monthly AK Research Tapes.

(Doctors around the world remember Dr. Goodheart spe...aking with this kind of detailed clarity about all these issues when they spoke with him...inexhaustible GENIUS!)

"Temperature difference in Acupuncture.
A. Inner aspect of knee is related to liver. 

 B. Outer aspect of knee is related to stomach.

 C. Patella aspect of knee is related to spleen.

 D. Lateral portion of lower limb, starting at head of fibular to lateral maleolus is related to gallbladder.

 E. Medial aspect of leg from the Achilles tendon to the os calcis is related to the kidney.

 F. Midway on the radial ulnar aspect of arm on the palmar surface is related to the paracardium or circulation sex, (the P-4 or H-4 area).

 G. On the volar aspect of the arm from the olecranon process to the mid-portion of the transverse ligament, is related to the thyroid gland.

 H. On the base of the metacarpal to the tip of the little finger on the little finger side is the area associated with the small intestine.

 I. At the point L-1 to L-11, or what the Chinese call the "Three mile point." On the radial side of the arm at the elbow, the size of one half dollar, is the area associated with the large intestine.

 J. The mid-aspect of the lower limb at point K-7 is the area for the kidney or psoas.

 K. These areas will be hot to the touch if the meridian is full.

 L. These same areas will be cool if the meridian is empty or deficient.

A quick review of the above.
A. Bladder or sacrospinalis, B-59 to B-60, (medial aspect of Achilles tendon).

 B. Liver or pectoralis major sternal division, L-8, (medial aspect of knee).

 C. Stomach or pectoralis major clavicular division, S-34 to S-36, (lateral aspect of knee).

 D. Gall bladder or popliteus muscle, G-33 to G-39, (lateral aspect of lower leg).

 E. Spleen lower and middle trapezius, pancreas, latissimus dorsi, St-9, (adjacent to the patella).

 F. Heart or subscapularis, H-7, (on the palmar surface of the hand, little finger side).

 G. Note: Correlate the above areas with Chinese pulse evaluation, alarm points, and muscle testing."



A. Running a meridian from beginning to end turns muscle on.

 B. Running a meridian from the end to the beginning, turns a muscle off.


1. Running kidney meridian from K-1 to K-27, will turn on psoas muscle. 

 2. Running a kidney meridian from K-27 to K-1 will turn off psoas muscle with the exception:

 a. When too much energy exists in a meridian, that meridian will not turn off. (Plus meridian).

 C. Conception vessel works in reverse.

 1. When running CV-24 to CV-1, a positive muscle response is elicited.

 a. Any muscle will turn on that is associated with a cranial fault.

 2. Conception vessel locks cranial fault in corrected position. Also locks upper cervical and occipital faults, (atlas, axis, and 3rd cervical).

 D. Governing vessel.

 1. Starts at coccyx tip, runs over the head on midline, over the nose to upper lip.

 a. Follows usual course, running forward turns muscle on, turning backward turns muscle off.

 2. Governing vessel is associated with sacral faults.

 3. Does not lock pelvis as unit, (posterior ilium, posterior ischium, etc.).

 4. It will only lock a sacral fault, respiratory spinal fluid in nature.

 5. A sacral respiration fault cannot be reversed, once the governing vessel has been locked.

 E. A cranial respiratory fault cannot be reversed once the conception vessel has been locked."

  1. Great and easy-to-understand tutorial, thnx!

  2. Great things you’ve always shared with us. Just keep writing this kind of posts.The time which was wasted in traveling for tuition now it can be used for studies.Thanks tcm singapore

  3. I would love to get certified in AK. Do you have classes available? You can reach me at
