Lung 7 is a very powerful point. As the Luo point of the Lung channel, this point is used to treat anything related to the lungs—asthma, wheezing, bronchitis, cough, congestion, etc. The internal pathway of the lung channel passes through the throat, the lungs, the stomach, and the intestines so it is very good as a source for digestive issues, including constipation.
Sadness and grief represent the emotions of the Lung. You’ve been around people who are grieving. They have a hard time taking a deep breath. From an esoteric point of view, this is representative of not having the strength to “breath life to the fullest”. Lung 7 is a great point for this person. Treatment of Lung 7 will help the lungs to receive more air, thus “breath easy” and have the strength to move on to new experiences.
