 Luo points (crosslinking points)
 What are Luo-Points? What do they do?
Luo points are crosslinking points. They direct the energy into grid-like branching.
Usually they are in connection to a paired meridian.
Paired meridians are for example lung and colon and heart and small intestine, spleen and stomach or kidney and bladder.

In practice, one uses a Luo Point frequently when treating a Yuan-balancing point.
If someone has, for example, cold hands, a weak voice or respiratory symptoms, then one decides often
for lung yuan point LU9 to strengthen the lung energy. To enhance the effect further, one now uses
also the Luo point of the coupled meridian, namely the large intestine meridian, pont LI6.
A significantly stimulating effect occurs because from the Luo Point, additional energy is supplied.
(The Yuan-balancing points and the assigned Luo points are shown in the table below).

With the Luo Point you can compensate emptiness, resolve weakness, eliminate congestion.
The Luo Point is also particularly suitable for emotional blocks such as sadness, depression (LI6 and Lu9)
or anxiety (M40 and Sp3), etc. The energy flow is dynamised.

From the Luo Point outgoing reticulated branches are more superficial than the main meridians, so they are often visible.
But only if they are not in a state of emptiness. Then they can not be seen at all but disappeare completely.
Often, it is much otherwise perceive as a small net-like structure.
In the fullness of state they are jammed and then clearly visible in the small blood capillaries

 Are Luo points also used alone?
Luo-points can also be used independent of yuan-points for diversion of overheating. For example, with swelling.
By rapid withdrawal of the needle on can make the point to bleed after it a bit.

Or you can use Luo points for tensed superficial muscles, or skin problems, interestingly often on the opposite side.
Left shoulder pain can therefore be treated with Lu7 at the right side.
