The Stomach Meridian:Earth, Yang
ST 1: CHENGQI(Contain Tears)
ST 1 is one of the more sensitive points and will be easily damaged by even a light blow to the area. Even a li8ght blow is often enough to cause extreme nausea and a drainage of qi from the upper body. A medium strike here will cause a knock out and a hard strike can cause death. This is a point that will affect badly the Yang Ming through its connection to CO 20 and will in general drain the Yang qi from the body. The liver is also affected by a strike to ST 1 as the liver controls the eyes and whatever happens to the eye area also has an affect upon the liver.
ST 2: SIBAI (Four
Approximately 1 cun directly below ST 1, In the Infraorbital foramen between the orbicularis oculi and quadratus labii superior muscles.
8: TOUWEI (Head Support) (Head Safeguard)
Located 0.5cun within the anterior hairline at the corner of the forehead. 4.5cun lateral to the GV MO. The point is found in the galea aponeurotica on the superior margin of the temporalis muscle.
This point will cause concussion with more nausea than any of the other head strikes due to its being a ST point. Great local pain is felt with a qi drainage, then KO. Dead can occur if this strike is hard enough.ST 9: RENYING (Man's Welcome)
