Gall Bladder 34 is anterior and distal to the head of the fibula. It is on the fascial line between the anterior and lateral compartments of the calf. The anterior compartment contains the Tibialis Anterior, Extensor Hallicus Longus, and Extensor Digitorum Longus. The lateral compartment contains the Peroneus Longus and Brevis. The lateral compartment is part of the lateral line in Tom Myers Anatomy Trains.
You can feel this fascial line by pressing into it with your fingers then alternately plantarflexing and dorsiflexing your ankle. When you plantarflex you will feel the peroneus longus contract, and when you dorsiflex you will feel the tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus contract. You can follow this line down your calf, feeling the muscles on either side of it alternately contracting and relaxing. Several other points in the gall bladder meridian are along this fascial line.
You can also feel this line while alternately inverting and everting your ankle. Tibialis anterior inverts the ankle, while peroneus longus everts the ankle, so you can feel the muscles alternately contracting and relaxing as you invert and evert your ankle.
The Massage Technique Library was recently rebuilt from the ground up. The new library is much faster and more secure than the previous versions. There is an improved search function, and an enhanced comment system. Soon there will be a way to save your favorite techniques in a favorites menu.
The library is currently free and open to the public, so please check it out while you can. No login or registration is necessary.
Soon the library will once again be for members only, with the exception of the free section.
We are not raising the price, so membership will continue to be only $7 per month or $72 per year. There will be a way to sign up for the library on May 10th. Current library members will have access to the library without signing up again but may need to reset their password.
With the rebuilding of over 800 interlinked pages with video content, there are bound to be some errors and glitches. Please let us know of any problems or concerns by using our contact form here. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I hope you enjoy the new library, and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
