When there is chest pain with cold feeling surging up, apply 3 moxa cones each at the acupuncture points, PC6 and LV3, 5 moxa cones on Dokeum, and 3 x 7 moxa cones at the point, 1 cun lateral to the median line, 6 cun distal to the belly button.
Also measure the distance from one corner of the patient’s mouth to the other corner of the mouth with a waxed string and mark the distance on the string. Mark two more points with the same distance on the string next to the marked point. Make the string a triangle shape with each marked point being one angle. Place one angle on the belly button and mark where the other two angles touch on the lower abdomen. Apply 2 x 7 moxa cones each at the points.
