shaoyang channel, in which case it is frequently accompa-
nied by pain of the temporal or parietal regions and eye
(often seen in migrainous headaches). Yangbai GB-14 is a
meeting point of the Gall Bladder shaoyang channel with
the Stomach and Large Intestine yangming channels, and
is therefore the pre-eminent local point in the treatment of

pain of the forehead, whether due to interior disharmony


or invasion of exterior pathogenic factors. Some classical
sources, for example the Great Compendium of Acupuncture
and Moxibustion, also imply that Yangbai GB-14 can dispel
wind-cold from the body as a whole and recommend it for
inability to get warm despite wearing much clothing, and
shivering and aversion to cold on the back.
Yangbai GB-14 is also an important local point for the
treatment of various diseases of the eyes and eyelids due
to a wide range of aetiologies, especially exterior or inte-
rior wind, manifesting as lacrimation, deviation of the
eye, drooping, twitching or itching of the eyelids, pain
and itching of the pupils and night-blindness.
