Mountain Stream

Acupuncture Point Series – Kidney Meridian: Kid 3

Kid 3 “Greater Mountain Stream” is the Yuan-Source and Shu-Stream point.

When Kidneys are in balance and energetic harmony, we have the strength and capacity to deal with life’s challenges. This is mainly due to the fact that the Kidneys store our Jing Essence, which tonifies our bones and marrow. It is the Marrow/Yin aspect of the brain that assists to nourish and strengthen both memory and concentration.

From a practical perspective, this point is often used to regulate menstruation, insomnia when present from deficiency, the presence of low back problems, tinnitus and deafness, and the symptoms of ageing.
