Front-Mu Point of the Kidney Meridian
Although Front-Mu point, GB 25 is used more often as a diagnosis point rather than for treatment.
Front-Mu points can be used to treat diseases of the affected Zang-Fu organ, and those of Yang meridians and collaterals. They treat diseases of Six Fu-organs and diseases of yang meridians. An adverse reaction when a Front-Mu point is pressed can help make a diagnosis.
