Abstract

 

The acupuncture is one of the most widely known methods of Chinese medicine. The essence of acupuncture is the insertion of special needles into acupuncture points, which are located on energetic pathways called meridians. In this paper, we have focused on the lung meridian, specifically on the possible influence of acupuncture point LU5 stimulation by an acupuncture needle on bronchial asthma. Our study focuses on locating the points, their projection on the upper limb, and dissection of surrounding areas in thin layers and finding of possible ways of their influence on a human organism. By dissection of these points and subsequent evaluation of surrounding structures, which could be influenced by the insertion, it is possible to determine the potential way how the given meridian can influence functions of organs, which are assigned to it.
