The purpose is to balance Zang-FU. Usually one Yang divergence on one side and one Yin divergence on the other side is used with GST. Do not cross-connect divergences. The traditional connectsion are as follows:

The First Confluence (K/UB)   UB 1 (+) or UB 11 (+) with K 10 (-) or UB 40 (-)
The Second Confluence (Liv/GB)   GB 1 (+) with liv 8 (-) or GB 34 (-)
The Third Confluence (SP/St)   St 1 (+) with Sp 9 (-) or St 36 (-)
The fourth confluence (H/SI)   UB (-) with H3 (+) or SI 8 (+)
The Fifth Confluence (P/SJ)   GB 12 (-) with P 3 (+) or SJ 10 (+)
The Sixth confluence (Lu/LI)   St 12 (-) with Lu 5 (+) or LI 11 (+)

GST= gold-silver techniques
+ equals tonifying treatment, hand or gold needle
- equals sedation treatment hand or silver needle
