Shoujie (T 22.10)

Location

This point is a two-point set on the palmar aspect of the hand, along the HT channel between the 4th and 5th metacarpal bones. The first point overlaps with Shaofu (HT 8), which is where the tip of the little finger touches the palm when a fist is made. In general, this will be on the distal transverse palmar crease. The second point is 0.5 cun proximal to the first point. There are some sources that state this is an individual point (overlapping Shaofu (HT 8)), while others state that it is a three-point set, with the third point being 0.5 cun proximal to the second one.
