Bai Hui - the acupuncture point

In acupuncture, Bai Hui is located towards the end of the governing vessel meridian on the top of the head. It is described as the meeting point of the six yang channels.

It is located by acupuncture practitioners on the central imaginary line that is the GV meridian(from the coccyx over the head to the front of the face)at a point that intersects another line connecting the Rt and L ears.

The point can be very effectively used to treat and relieve headaches and in association with other acupuncture points help promote relaxation.
