How to find
In a standing position with the patient’s arms hanging down, the spinous process of T7 is approximately on the level of the inferior angle of the scapula. From there, count down three spinous processes to the spinous process of T10. BL-19 is located on the level of the lower border of its spinous process and 1.5 cun lateral to the midline at the highest point of the paraspinal musculature. Or: Use C7 as a reference point. From there, count down 10 spinous processes to T10 and locate BL-19 1.5 cun lateral to the lower border of its spinous process. Or: Use the lumbar spine as a reference point.Located on the same level are GV 07 (Central Pivot) (on the midline), a point of Ex-B-2 (0.5 cun lateral to the midline) and BL 48 (Yang’s Key Link) (3 cun lateral to the midline).
1.5 cun lateral to the posterior midline, on the level of the lower border of the spinous process of the 10th thoracic vertebra (T10).
