Front Alarm Points:

Sometimes called "Front Collecting" points, these points are used for analysis and treatment. They are seen as points where the energy of the relevant organs "collect". They are used more in acute diseases, but can also be used in chronic cases. Combining the Back Transport with the Front Alarm points is effective in producing more long lasting therapeutic results.
