    WHO : On the anteromedial aspect of the ankle, in the depression medial to the tibialis anterior tendon, anterior to the medial malleolus.
    Note: LR4 is located midway between SP5 and ST41.

    Note: LR5 is located at the same level as the upper two thirds and lower one third of the line connecting the apex of the patella with the prominence of the medial malleolus, at the centre of the medial border (surface) of the tibia, at the same level as KI9.

     

    LR-6 中都

    WHO : On the anteromedial aspect of the leg, at the centre of the medial border (surface) of the tibia, 7 B-cun proximal to the prominence of the medial malleolus.
    Note: LR6 is located at 0.5 B-cun inferior to the midpoint of the line connecting the apex of the patella with the prominence of the medial malleolus, at the centre of the medial border (surface) of the tibia.
