Do you suffer from persistent cough? You may only think you’ve tried everything. For centuries, acupuncture has soothed those with persistent cough. There is no reason to doubt that it can help you as well. In acupuncture, there are several points that are commonly used to treat coughing. Some of these include:

  • LU-7 (Lieque) - located on the forearm, near the wrist.
  • LU-10 (Yuji) - located on the forearm, about one thumb width above LU-7.
  • ST-40 (Fenglong) - located on the calf, about 4 fingers below the knee.
  • GB-20 (Fengchi) - located at the base of the skull, where the neck meets the head.
  • PC-6 (Neiguan) - located on the forearm, two thumb widths above the wrist
