What are good points for grief and shock from dealing with a sudden death in the family
Are you asking as a practitioner of acupuncture? or for self-treatment with something like acupressure?
I am a practitioner- sudden shock hearing about death of a grandson
I’m sorry to hear of our loss!
It would ultimately depend a bit on how the grief is manifesting and on your underlying patterns, but generally I do something along the lines of LU 3, HT 8 (although PC 8 works as well), KD 1 and LV 3. Other potential combinations would be CV 17, LI 4 w/ LV 3 (the “four gates”), LU 9, and HT 7. While I don’t practice classical five element acupuncture, my section in “spirit points” may also be useful.
For very strong reactions bloodletting the heart, pc and/or lung jing well points can also be useful.
