Abstract

Objectives : The objective of this study was to examine the acupoint location of Kyoshin (KI8) from classic literatures. Methods : A review of KI8 location along the meridian route from 18 classics of acupuncture and moxibustion - 『Huangdineijing·Lingshu』, 『Huangdimingtangjingjixiao』, 『Zhenjiujiayijing』, 『Huangdineijingtaisu』, 『Huangdimingtangjiujing』, 『Beijiqianjinyaofang』, 『Waitaimiyaofang』, 『Ishimpo』, 『Taipingshenghuifang』, 『Tongrenshuxuezhenjiutujing』, 『Shengjizonglu』, 『Zhenjiuzishengjing』, 『Shisijingfahui』, 『Shenyingjing』, 『Zhenjiujuying』, 『Yixuerumen』, 『Zhenjiudacheng』, and 『Yizongjinjian』 - was performed. Then, KI7 location on classics and current standard KI8 location were compared. Results : Based on modern standard acupoint location system, the acupoint of KI8 is located on the medial aspect of the leg, in the depression posterior to the medial border of the tibia and it is on the route of spleen meridian. But no classics of acupuncture and moxibustion said KI8 was located on the route of spleen meridian. In addition, KI8 location on classics was largely described as being located in front of KI7, but only in 『Yizongjinjian』 was it written that KI8 was located posterior to KI7. Conclusions : Through a classic literature review, it is possible to explain that KI8 is located posterior to spleen meridian. The acupoint of KI8 seems to be located between medial border of flexor pollicis longus and flexor digitorum longus based on anatomical location.
