Several are around the head, such as the temple, the hinge of the jaw, and the bottom of the jaw. There are a number around the neck, such as just to the side of the neck, above the collar bone, as well as many other places that are near the esophagus.

Muscles have nerves running through them, such as the biceps, triceps, and much of the forearm. The wrist, the muscle between the thumb and forefinger, and the fingers can all experience great pain.

The solar plexus, the stomach, halfway between the top of the thigh and the knee, the side and back of the shin, and several others are all susceptible to certain pressures.
