Then, palpate from the midpoint of this line in a lateral direction towards the temple, until reaching a distinct depression in the temporal bone.
Taiyang Ex-HN-5 is located in the center of this depression. This point tends to be pressure-sensitive, especially with temporal headaches. Patients often get relief by using acupressure on this point.
