       What you should know  -  when you will start to use acupressure
                           |
                                when you are using our  guides.
 
 


Nearly all healing or combat points locations on the body are based on their Cun 
measurement from a prominent anatomical landmark. 

If you are not accurate then you will not get much effect in your self- defense or healing applications.

 

  What is a Cun (sometimes written as "tsun, Japanese: sun, Korean: chon)    Measurement?
 
 The "cun" is the standard unit of measurement for the body used in acupuncture. 

As everyone's body  has different dimensions, it is defined according to the person whose body is to be treated or attacked.
 
                  1 cun =  width of the thumb, in the middle, at the crease. One cun is also equal to the space between the distal interphalangeal joint and the proximal interphalangeal joint on the middle finger.


              
               1 cun measure by thumb        1 cun measure by middle finger        0.5 cun measure by thumb


 
 
 1.5 cun measure by index and middle finger
 
               
              1,5 cun =  The two sides of the index and middle fingers when they                         are held together at the level of the proximal interphalangeal joints.
 
                

2 cun measure by index, middle, ring fingers
 
               
 
       2 cun=  combined breadth of the index, middle and ring finger, at the                          level of  the index finger`s end/tip.
 
       2 cun      is also equal to distance between proximal interphalangeal`
                       joint (crease of) and end/tip of index finger.


 
 
3 cun measure by 4 fingers, excluding thumb
                       
 
                                      
 
 
                                               
                                  
                                   3 cun =  combined breadth of the 4 fingers held together,   
                                                 dorsal  aspect, excluding thumb, at level of proximal
                                                 interphalangeal joint of middle finger.                 

 

                             
                    
 
 
        


       
   However,  these  "cun"s  can only be used on certain parts of the body when finding
 
    acupuncture (Combat) points - on other points you use other relative landmarks and
 
    proportions (see below.).
        
            For example,
                        
      the space from nipple to nipple is 8 cun and this 8 cun can be used to find points
 
     on the chest.
                        
    The distance from the elbow crease to the wrist crease is 12 cun and this 12 cun
   
    can be used to find points on the arm.
 
    The space from the center of the patella to the lateral malleolus is 16 cun
 
    and this 16 cun can be used to find points on the legs, etc.
 
       For more accurate measurements to all body is used so called proportional snipped
 
       method (see below), but for our purpose it will be enough to use finger wide.

 
                                They will be shown also in     schemes.

If you are making point massage to other person, it will be preferable to make small pattern 
(see in photo)   using patient (not yours) finger wide. 

It is preferable that for women you use right, but for men left hand fingers.

How to make with middle finger 1 cun measurement.

       

  
          
 
                                      
                              
 Remember!

 
 On the bones usually they are located in delve or fosse.

 

            Usually acupressure points are more sensitive than surrounding area.
 
 – If it works, you will feel pain,warm, light tendency on your hand, leg fingers or along
 
     bones, tingling, and pulsation).

 

             For this reason do not relay on cun measurements.
 
           Touch ~ 0.5-inch area and listen in your feelings.




Some translations and advises from old resources

    
       
There are two most important methods to affect the acupressure points:
                        
                                             

 The 1st is pressing or strengthening them, when the fingers are used to press or something 3 to 4 mm thick, like a  pencil eraser. 
Some points can be pressed using a fingernail. 
Sometimes clockwise movement can be additionally  applied. Duration- at least half a minute, but preferably one or two minutes.  
 
The 2nd method is reducing (calming) influence.

The point can be reduced by lightly pressing finger that continually move in the counter-clockwise direction. 
The influence should be applied for at least half a minute, but preferably- one to two minutes. This causes sedative effect.

Apply influence to points on both sides of the body simultaneously if possible, if not- preferably affect a left point as   the first and the point on the right side as the second.

When you apply self-massage don`t worry if it is difficult to keep preferable directions of affect (counter-clockwise and clockwise). 
Light pressure and free movement suitable for you can change a counter clockwise direction (reducing effect) and stronger pressure- accordingly clockwise direction (strengthening effect).

 


Remember and keep in mind 
that in the context of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine the names   of  the organs   are not the same as the organs we know from traditional anatomy. 

Chinese interpretation of “Kidneys” means the adrenals and endocrine system. It is amazing, but Chinese “Bladder” is the kidneys (additionally also urinal system). Chinese “Liver” is liver partially. There is also something else throughout the body. “Lungs” incorporate lungs as well as skin. ‘Spleen” includes the energy system of whole body.

How the emotions affect meridians?

             Opinion of the acupressure masters is: 

     Too much fear injures the Kidneys (and injured Kidneys cause fear)

     Too much sadness injures the Lungs (and injured Lungs cause sadness) 

     Too much thinking/worrying injures the Spleen (and injured Spleen causes worrying)
     
     Too much anger injures the Liver (and vice versa- injured Liver causes anger).

     Too much excitement injures the Heart i.e. too much emotion injures the 
Heart. 
     
     Accordingly, injured Heart can cause strengthening of emotions and it is closed cycle.
  



 

 
        
                                      

 
 
 
 
Shortly about contraindications.

       In any case ask for doctor`s advice (also see medical notice on the end of introduction page) but

                       acupressure is  not recommended when:
  • Cancer with metastases, 
  • pregnancy, 
  • acute pain, and illnesses with fever, 
  • blood diseases,
  • when patient is too weakened or older than 70-75, 
  • acute psychosis, 
  • dysfunctions of vital organs.
 
 
Be sure not to reduce points more often than necessary if you are weakened from age or disease
0.5 minute may be enough.

                    How to be sure that point is founded..... Are there any criteria?

 As graphical description let you not go deeper in anatomical terms, carefully read the description.

  

                    Usually active points are dislocated in dip or in dimple, sometimes on wart. This corresponds also to the bones.

 

                         Usually acupressure points are more sensitive than surrounding area. Is the place is right, easily pressing
                         (you can try with rotation motion) 5-10 sec., you must feel the warmness, light current to the finger of
                         arms and legs or along your bones, tingling, pulsation. The pain point, for sure, must be painful, when
                         you push stronger. If it is not working than you can try to change a place and pressure direction.

 

                     
                     

 

       
 You were writing about delayed effect when human got light household trauma and without           visible reasons on the next morning was dead. Which is this point and where it is located?

                     


 In the described case the man was unfortunately fell down with butt and back on small root (so actually got 2 point
               blows, in addition very unlucky angle for him)............

                                                                                                                                                          see  F. A. Q.  page of  


 
             

                               The first time I see such easy but in the same time accurate point dislocation descriptions.
                  Even if I don’t know anatomical terms, I can easily find them. The doctor which is familiar to me,
                 with who we are training together, approve that also from medical opinion all are correct although
                 not always is explainable in science terms. All I want more is in the same way showed fighting styles.

              Thank you, this was our aim – correct, visible and usable information in relation to fighting styles. Maybe this
              will be done in extended publication. For the present just search, because in this thematic are many materials and
             excellent trainers. The only suggestion is that do not learn with aggressive trainer. If you will become aggressive
             even  in thoughts, you must fight often and in many places. Aggression is attracting aggression and this will not
             end in good way.
                  
 
                                  I found the points on my body very easy, but it is not going so well on others body.
 
 

            Answ. Do not forget that cun measurements are opponents (or patient), not your finger wide......
            If there is not a reaction on control and pain points, without tearing off the hand (with sliding move)
            a little change place and/or pressure direction until   reaction will show out.

 

                  One more time let’s talk about point localization on opponents` body.
           We explained that point dislocation depends from human body in whole. There are also people with very
           long hands or short legs. Not for the entire God has predicted to be as models (or ideal dummy for our
            trainings). Also on stubby people will be more difficult to influence through the points. However, the
            most important is that several people constitution demand also makes different influence directions....
                                 (undelined  is also very important for healing..,     auth.rem.)

 

              



                               A.R. - the main author of “The combat points. Ideal position” answers to M.K and others.

                       No, I do not training in private trainings and do not take new learners. 
              I will not do this about 3-4 years more at least. I have stored a lot of information (not only in martial arts aspects) 
             and I must find   something more. The exception is that boy (now he is already adult) who 15 years ago came to me,
             completely unknown person to him and ask to become his teacher. Then I decline this request  because I was not ready. 
                           Now I am thinking that we can find something together.
                 If you are reading these lines, please find me in the same place. If you will
                 write, put on the article “learner” and start with details which know only
                 we     -  where and when we met…
