The Lu 7 is found on the wrists’ thumb side, beside the head of the radial bone (just under the thumb base) about an inch from the wrist’s crease.

7. Pericardium 6 or Neiguan point (Pc 6) – Alleviates shallow breathing, worries, and stress that can result in circulatory problems and a tensed neck. The P5 acupoint is found on the interior of your wrist, about two finger widths from the wrist’s crease and between the two major tendons that can be palpated with the middle of the arm.
