the cranial nerves
in Dien Chan

This page is dedicated to the Dien Chan diagram of reflection of the cranial nerves on the face.

If you are a doctor or dentist, it will be quite easy to understand and assimilate. If, on the other hand, your knowledge of anatomy is more limited, we recommend that you have this sheet at hand that summarises the effects of each bqc·point mentioned here.


The good Dien Chan practitioner often tends to think of diagrams of reflection that represent the external parts of the body and internal organs. However, many pathologies also affect the circulation of nerve impulses.


And because it is not always easy to remember the effects of each of the essential bqc·points of this Dien Chan diagram, we have decided to help you with a free booklet (available below).

But first a bit of history

At the end of the Great War of Vietnam, the Drug Treatment Centre Binh Trieu in Saigon hired Pr Bùi Quôc Châu as an acupuncturist. The main mission of this hospital was to help patients overcome their withdrawal crises in the best possible way.

Drug addicts suffer from many pathologies with multiple complications. 

At that time, there were no drugs , only protocols of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) imposed by the administration of the centre.

The diagnosis was slow and patients dependent on doctors. However, Professor Châu took advantage of the chaotic postwar situation to freely test his hypotheses. In 1978, he discovered another network of fixed points on the face, much more powerful than conventional treatments.

Making incredible recoveries, his happy patients attract others.

This very effective technique may seem complex to the beginner. Fortunately, Professor Châu understood in 1977 that his map of the 257 fixed points describes many patterns of reflection on the face.

It is these diagrams that we combine with bqc·points formulas that will lead us to fast and deep results.

Understanding the effectiveness of his multiple diagrams, he invented instruments based on the principles of yin and yang in order to abandon the needles. Eager to help the poor and indigent facing a disease, they teach how to continue the care at home, using multireflex tools.

The diagram of the brain on the face

Professor Bùi Quôc Châu decided in 1984 to propose this diagram that symbolises the brain on the face .

The brain is projected to the frontal lobes on the forehead and cerebellum at the height of the chin. Thus we can verify that the right side corresponds to its correct representation and vice versa.

At the beginning, and for lack of precise notions, the Pr Châu does not find exact correlations with the already known bqc·points. Thanks to the clinical trials of his students, he gradually discovered the relationships between his points  and the functions of the cranial nerves.

We must continue research and «build bridges» between the effects revealed by each bqc·point and the implications of each pair of cranial nerves.

Before discovering this diagram of reflection, Professor Bùi Quôc Châu often used the bqc·point 34· to treat pathologies that affect the eyes.

Although he knew that this point corresponded to the feet (Penfield diagram) and the trapezius (diagram of the limbs on the face), his patients who also suffered from vision problems reported marked improvement.

At first, he believed that the good results came from the fact that the bqc·point 34·  is very close to the eye. But it was by projecting this diagram of the brain onto the face that this new reflection was demonstrated: it's the optical nerve.

Obviously, all ocular conditions are not linked to cranial nerve II.

However, it is important not to overlook these bqc·points 34· to try and verify. On many occasions, we have successfully unblocked nerve flow for quick and amazing effects.

Our students with good knowledge of anatomy do not usually skip this outline. That is why we insist on those who do not think about it.

📌 However, be careful not to just focus on the points. You would  forget the multireflexological dimension of the method. 

It is necessary to combine the stimulation of the bqc·points with those of the reflex zones of the diagrams. It is the best way to compose a complete protocol to obtain excellent long-lasting results.

It is also important to understand that not everything can be solved with a few points. 

And often it is the combination of stimulation of the cranial nerves with new reflex zones that will give a solution. 

Learn to builds "multireflexological bridges" between stimulated facial regions and parts of the body.

How to practice?

When we want to test the answers that the bqc·points of the brain's reflection diagram on the face can give us, we have to do the following:

1| Start by consulting the list of influences of the bqc·points on the pairs of cranial nerves.            

2| The use of the fine detector (multireflex tool nº101 or nº103)  allows stimulating bqc·points for 10 seconds.              

3| Ask the person to evaluate the sensitivity of each point stimulated.               

4| Return to the one that seems more sensitive and stimulate it for 30 seconds with a constant and static pressure.              

If it is too painful, it is maybe because you press too much or because this person is very sensitive. Prefer then a delicate massage of the zone of the point using the detector or its smooth sphere.             

5| Ask the consultant to test the result and after the stimulation.              

6| Resume stimulation work for another 30 seconds.           

7| If the result is not convincing, try to stimulate the reflex zone with the yang ball of Detector nº103 or the one of the Yin-yang roller nº206.      

8| If there are no changes, it may mean that the cranial nerve being worked is not necessarily involved in the disorder.

Let's illustrate the concept with an example:

Pick someone who suffers from a loss of smell.

The list of influences tells us that the bqc·points 197· correspond to a reflex of the olfactory nerve.

We test and then stimulate these points with the detector.

We put a bottle of essential oil under the person's nose again so they can appreciate the difference.

It has often happened that the person notices a very discreet recovery. However, by continuing to stimulate bqc·points 197·, we did not get any better result.

But we also know that the bqc·points 197·  have an action on the knees. In fact, they belong to the so-called "Penfield" diagram of reflection.

Therefore, it is an invitation to stimulate the person's real knees  with the  Double mini yang ball nº307 .

After 2 minutes on each knee, it's a matter of trying our essential oil bottle again.

At each step we see a slight improvement .

Therefore, we have to keep looking, to stimulate all the knees of all the diagrams without forgetting that the elbow-knee link is also important.

In two sessions, He had recovered his sense of the smell!  

It should also be mentioned  that we advised you to hammer each afternoon  the most sensitive  bqc·points that we had identified. She confirmed to us that she had delicately used the Little-hammer nº128, at least a hundred times on each point.

That's why we recommend professionals to systematically propose a multireflex tool for your client to carry out a maintenance stimulation. These exercises performed at home are extremely important so that the next session allows us to move more deeply towards the solution and general balance.

We recommend  using the  Faceasit application to have on hand details about each bqc·point. It is  the best way to understand the possible "multireflexology bridges" to enrich your treatments. 


All bqc·points and reflex areas selected to custom protocol. 

This is how you become a care designer in Dien Chan!

How to stabilize our formula?

After applying your formula of bqc·points, you can strengthen the treatment by sticking heat patches on each one.

Cut small squares of Salonpas™ and stick them on each  point. ±7mm = 1/4 inch

Advises that hold the patches only 2 hours during the day or all night if stuck before bed.

After reviewing each patch with  your Little-hammer nº128 not only to improve the adhesion, but also to open the point to better absorb the heat released.

✔︎ The patches remain without cooling the point evaporating. The stimulation is slow and deep

📌 However, make sure that the individual is not allergic to  methyl salicylate (6%).

Some tips for beginners

To stimulate a fixed point on the face, it is important to know how to detect it and to have learned to read the Dien Chan map correctly.

For best results, we recommend to start working on the reflex area with a multireflex tool. That is the region surrounding the bqc·point.

✔︎ In this diagram of the cranial nerves, we prefer the Little-hammer nº128 that provides the possibility of practising spot stimulation with its rubber tip, but also using the yin side provided by soft rods. 


Don't hit hard! It is the sensitive area that we need to stimulate to energise without damaging the skin. 


Before buying a particular tool, consult a list of kits available to purchase 2 or 3 tools for a better price. 

📌 The instruments represented on this page are a proposal. There are several  Dien Chan tools that are adapted to each case and each type of treatment.

What are these Dien Chan tools? 

To help you understand their effectiveness, here is some descriptions of each of the multireflex tools used in our example.

⚡️ For more information on genuine multireflex tools see their detailed files at 

Yin-yang roller nº206

This multireflex tool helps to stimulate small facial reflex areas.

Its small ball of spikes is made from natural horn to take advantage of its antiseptic properties. The horn allows us stimuli that do not disturb the microbiota of the skin, unlike the plastic that spreads bacteria.

Its small spikes provide a yang effect to heat, concentrate and revitalise the microcirculation of the area.

Its mini roller of stainless steel allows a yin work to refresh, disperse and relax while stimulating the lymphatic currents.

Little-hammer nº128

The preferred tool for bqc·points stimulation without worrying about their exact coordinates.

Its rubber side is the most similar to the detector and its effect is yang.

While dispersing the very localised stresses, we hammer very gently with its mini prongs side to obtain a yin effect.

📌 If you cannot attend a course, you can start studying with the interactive application called Faceasit to learn how to locate reliefs of the face .

▲ Small coloured triangles indicate these marks.

Points detector nº101

To work the bqc·points of the cranial nerves, we recommend  the fine detector or the Little-hammer.

Detector nº101 has a smooth sphere of natural horn that allows very gentle massage of specific regions.

The yang ball of Detector nº103 is made of natural horn to stimulate the reflex zones in a yang way.  

The thin rods of these two detectors are made of stainless steel and are used to stimulate the points of the Dien Chan formulas.

For a proper use, it is essential to learn to read the map correctly. 

2 examples of treatments that use this brain diagram on the face.

The list is not exhaustive, but it can help you better understand the use of this diagram of reflection.


Not all tinnitus is the same, but some are associated with pair VII. This is translated in Dien Chan by the bqc·points 5· 10· and 74·.

The bqc·point 5· which is in the centre of the nasal fin is often very painful in the case of sciatica. But we have managed to reduce ringing in the ears by 90% when stimulated.

In this case, ideally stimulate the point with your detector and maintain the pressure for about 1 minute.

When there is a reduction experience, it means we're on the right track.

However, we will have to complete the treatment by looking for other reflex areas of the ears on different diagrams.

If the activation of bqc·point 5· gives results, you can propose the Detector yang ball nº103 to continue treatment at home every time tinnitus is appearing. 

Trigeminal disorder

The multireflexology treatments for facial paralysis and other disorders located along the trigeminal nerve are using stimulation on this diagram.

This involves detecting all the receptive points on both sides of the face and working on them for 30 seconds.

It is also important to advise the person to roll the same area several times a day.

Most results are obtained with a yang instrument equipped with spike balls such as multireflex tool nº307 .

If the patient experiences any better or increased sensitivity as a result of the treatment, we apply heat patches.

The reflects of the trigeminal nerve are bqc·points 61·. This point is not very easy to detect. It is the beginning of the curvature of the wing of the nose lowering.

Respond and to these mini questions so that we can send t e-mail the bundle of chips practices. Super useful not to forget this reflection scheme and its bqc·points.

We only send our documents to those who answer honestly with a real name, etc.

In fact, we are tired of finding out that our material  is  (mis) used and without being cited.
