    • Main point to expel wind from the Wei Qi level of the body, useful for early stages of wind-cold conditions (Common cold, cough, fever, headache, stiff neck).
    • Apply moxa here and on ST 36 to strengthen the Wei Qi (or the defensive layer of the body).  Strenghtening the defensive layer can increase resistance to colds and flus, but also stop the tendency of basic colds and/or flus from always going deeper in quickly, say to bronchitis or full blow sinus infections.  These types of treatments should be done when the person is not sick.
