Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes a set of 12 special acupuncture points (Acupuncture Point) placed in the front of the body that are connected with organs (Zang-Fu). In TCM an alarm point is both diag­nostic and therapeutic. When an organ is out of balance, the alarm point is tender and it will respond to a Circuit Localization or a Therapy Localization.  In kinesiology they are called Alarm Points (Alarm Point: follow this link for pictures and a more extensive description).
