Zu Wu Hu

Zu Wu Hu, or Foot Five Tigers, is a five-point unit on the lateral margin of the proximal phalanx of the great toe. These points are on the A-line (the radial margin) where the skin changes colors or textures. You can use these points singly or in combination.

You might recall the Wu Hu points. These are located in the exact same way, but on the toe. The functions are the same as well - Point 1 echos the head or upper body and Point 5 is the feet or lower body. You can actually use these points interchangeably with the Wu Hu points if you need to.

To locate these points:

  • Point 1 Point 1 is located at the joint line between the proximal and distal phalanx. This is the most distal point. If you think about it from a mirror/imaging perspective, this represents the head or top of the body.

  • Point 2 Locate this at the midpoint between 1 and 3.

  • Point 3 This is the mid-point between Point 1 and Point 5

  • Point 4 Locate this at the midpoint between Point 3 and Point 5.

  • Point 5 Point 5 is located at the line of the metatarso-phalangeal joint. From an imaging/mirroring perspective, this can represent the feet or lower body.
