Pain in the heart with cold feeling surging up

Heart pain

Here is how to treat pain in the heart with cold feeling surging up. 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 at 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.
