Of particular interest to the above element-points is, that the next point is always used as the son-point and the previous point always as the mother-point.
 
The mother-point always is tonifying (nourishing) the son-point and the son-point always has sedative (calming) effects to the mother point.
 
So if you want to strengthen a meridian, and thus the corresponding organ, then you can always add the mother point.
 
Conversely, one adds the son-point, if you want to get a calming effect on the mother element.
 
For example: If the kidney energy is weakened (Osteoporosis, back pain,rheumatic complaints), then you treat the kidney meridian points. But the mother also can help: You, therefore, may select on the kidney meridian the lung energy point (metal point) K7. It tonifies (strengthens) the energy, that feeds the water. Differently expressed: if the oxygen supply (mother, metal, lung) is amplified, then it strengthens the kidneys (child, water).
