Hi. I would like to clarify the points on the Dai Mai (Belt Meridian) of the Eight Extraordinary Meridian (Qi Jing Ba Mai). We know it passes by GB 26, 27 and 28 on both side of the body but what was not explained in detail in many books on meridians is how exactly does the Dai Mai loop and circle around the body ? Does it pass by the Ming Men and Qi Hai acupoints too when looping around the body.

Dai Mai would definitely need to intersect with Ren and Du mai as Dai Mai circles and encompasses the front and back of the body, so which acupoint does the Dai Mai intersects when crossing the Du Mai and which acupoint does the Dai Mai intersects when crossing the Ren Mai ?
