Grasshopper asks Brian: What is your favorite acupuncture point and why?

My favorite acupuncture point (over the last few years!) is Small Intestine 11 (Tian zong). Heavenly Gathering or Heavenly Ancestor. This point carries an enormous amount of Qi, opens up the whole shoulder, arm, and neck, and unblocks held emotions, especially those related to one's family and close relationships.
