In acupuncture, the points have very specific mechanisms of action and uses. For tendonitis, you can use the Master Point of Tendons to help stimulate healing. The point known as Gall Bladder 34, located on the lateral side of the leg, about a hand-breadth below the knee joint, is known as the master or influential point of tendons or sinews and has been used for thousands of years to speed healing in musculoskeletal injuries involving ligaments and tendons. Its effective use has also been verified over the years through a number of scientific studies, in combination with other points, including some near the affected site. You can massage this point yourself or apply linaments or essential oils to this point to help speed your healing. Check with a point location guide to get the exact location.
