On the medial aspect of the knee join. Flex the knee and locate the point above the medial end of the popliteal crease, posterior to the medial condyle of the tibia, on the anterior border of the insertion of semimembranosus and semitendinosus muscle, about 1 cun anterior to Yingu KID-10.
How to locate
Flex the knee to locate the popliteal crease and identify the tendon of semimembranosus and semitendinosus muscle. The semitendinosus is more prominent while semimembranosus is harder to identify as it lies deeper.
Glide a finger from the tendon of semimembranosus towards the patella and feel the depression between muscle below about 1 cun after. Locate LIV-8 anterior to both tendons.
