K-2 On the middle of the arch of the foot midway between the outer tip of the big toe and the back of the heel, on the medial side of the foot.
K-3 Midway between the prominence or tip of the medial malleolus (or the inner ankle bone) and the Achilles tendon on the medial side of the foot.
K-7 Two CUN proximal to K-3 on the medial border of the calcareus.
LI-1 0.1 CUN proximal to the radial corner, (towards the thumb), from the base of the index finger nail.
Li-11 At the outer end of the elbow crease when elbow is bent or midway between lu-5 and lateral epicondyle of the humerus when the elbow is semi- flexed.
LI-2 On the radial side of the index finger distal to the head of the metacarpal bone ( the third joint).
LI-3 On the radial side of the index finger proximal to the head of the metacarpal bone after the third joint).
LI-5 In the hollow below the thumb on the dorsal side of the palm, along the wrist crease.
Liv-1 On the big toe at the bottom of the nail, at the first phalange joint, lateral towards the second toe. 
Liv-2 0.5 CUN proximal to web margin between first and second toes.
Liv-3 On the dorsal surface of the foot in the angle between first and second metatarsals. Two CUN proximal to the margin of the web of the first and second toes. 
Liv-4 In the dip when the ankle joint is stretched outwards. In between St-41 and Sp-5.
Liv-8 In the transverse crease of the knee joint at the medial border of the semi- membranous tendon, 0.5 CUN from inner knee crease.

Lu-11 0.1 CUN proximal to the outer (lateral or radial) corner of thumbnail.
Lu-5 At the level of the elbow crease, on the lateral (radial) border of the tendon of the biceps muscle.
Lu-8 One CUN proximal from the wrist crease in the lateral side of the radial artery.
Lu-9 At the outer end of the wrist crease, in the lateral side of the radial artery.
P-3 In the ante-cubial crease of the medial (ulnar) border of the biceps tendon.
P-5 Three CUN proximal to the mid point of the wrist crease, between the tendons of the palmaris longus and flexor carpel radial muscles.
P-7 At the mid-point of the wrist crease between the tendons of the palmaris and flexor carpel radials muscles.
P-8 On the palm surface, between the tips of the middle and ring fingers as they touch the central region of the palm on clenching the fist. (Bend the fingers and lightly touch the palm between middle and ring finger).
P-9 On the mid point of the middle finger tip.
SI-1 0.1 CUN on medial to the radial corner  of the little finger.
SI-2 On the outer edge of the little finger on the third phalange.
SI-3 At the medial end of the main transverse of the palm on clenching the fist.

SI-8 At the dip of the place where the ulna and humerus meet.
Sp-1 0.1 CUN from the bottom of the big toe nail towards the medial side of the foot.
Sp-2 On the medial side of the foot, distal to the bunion bone (second joint) of the big toe on the line where the dark and pale colors of the skin meet.
Sp-3 On the medial side of the foot in the depression below the base of the first metatarsal bone, at the junction of the two colors of the skin on the medial border of foot. Proximal to the bunion bone of the big toe, on the line where the dark pale colors of the skin meet.
