Similar to Burong ST-19, Chengman ST-20 and Liangmen ST-21, Guanmen ST-22 is able to treat Excess patterns of Middle Burner (eg: the Stomach and the epigastric area), such as Stomach Qi Stagnation. However, comparing to its neighboring points, its functions also extend to Lower Burner (eg: abdomen) as well.
Furthermore, it is also widely used to resolve Dampness in the Middle and Lower Burner. Thus it can regulate the water passages so as to facilitate urination and bowel movement. For this purpose, it is often used together with Shuifen REN-9 and Jianli REN-11.
