    PS: to all of you BJJ players. Pressure point UB 57 is excellent for relieving and preventing calf cramps.
    More info please? I get these all the time in Judo and I hate it.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    To help this thread live again, Tedeschi also has a book specifically about pressure points Essential Anatomy : For the Healing and Martial Arts. It contrasts/compares western medicine with eastern medicine. Looks at the human body from the western point of view and then from the eastern. Quite interesting...

    the [western] bible of acupuncture points is "manual of acupuncture" by deadman. its is by far the best book so far, including diagrams of locations, actions, historical uses, and combinations of points, as well as some channel theory. the only problem is that it is a little pricey, like $130.

    UB57 does indeed rock as a local point for calf pain.

    I know some schools may occasionally teach a pressure point massage program or something.


    I love giving massages.
    Try shiatzu books.

    ditto on the requests, but my problem is inner thigh after hitting the sack for a few hours. I got advice here quite some time ago, hydration, calcium, magnesium, potasium, bananas and mushrooms for potassium... And if I eat my pills and such I'm ok after lifting or doing kicks (squat kicks anyone?)

    My instructor was talking about hitting meridians last night, I dunno if I follow all that, why not go for the liver or kidney and keep it simple?


    Meex, who is that is your avatar? If it's you maybe I should think again about the Honolulu throwdown :icon_neut

    I just kind of rub in general areas until I get a moan. Then I work on that for awhile. Work down towards the lower back and slowly slip under the blouse, as if it's just "in the way". Now go up to past the middle back and just lightly rub the shoulderblades, and possibly the shoulders depending on how tight the blouse is. Then return to the middle back and rub under the bra strap a bi.....

    Sorry.

    acupuncture points are superficial while organs are deep...although if you hit hard enough, or are hit hard enough, they aren't deep enough.

    SP10 was always one of my favorite places to punch somebody back in the day.
