The TW 23 Point

The triple warmer 23 point lies just outside the eyebrow. This point is located on a branch of the facial nerve and can be used to cause a loss of consciousness or increased parasympathetic effects on the heart. The facial nerve has direct connections to the vagus and trigeminal nerves, which have been linked to cardiac arrest when stimulated. Thus, stimulation of the triple warmer 23 point can stimulate the trigeminal and vagus nerves leading to syncope (fainting) or cardiac arrest in a susceptible individual.  Click here to see video clip of tw23
