This guide is a response to the need for clear and accessible descriptions of acupoint locations, a small but critical part of Chinese traditional Acu-medicine knowledge. This revised edition endeavors to provide easy to use directions for the exact locating of acupoints. Short, uniformly formatted textual descriptions are given alongside corresponding anatomical maps. The text and illustrations conform to the guidelines listed below. Efforts have been made to include alternative locations of points which are mentioned in various sources. It does not presume to be a new approach, nor is it limited to one particular perspective. The Acupoint Location Guide was first published in 2000, and was written as the book I envisioned as a student. Since then it has served thousands of students in their studies. I hope you will enjoy it too. Illustration Guidelines: ----------------------- -The illustrations present all important anatomical details required for accurate location of the points. -The different strata of the body: bones, muscles and tendons, skin, and arteries, are clearly delineated. -The illustrations show the correct body posture for locating the points. -All points are shown on the left side of the body, although they are found on both sides. Some illustrations show the point, untitled, also on the right side with additional anatomical aspects of the location. -It is a good idea to use different colors to mark the various body structures in the illustrations, and to underline the corresponding text in the same color. Text Guidelines: ----------------- -The names of the acupoints are given in Pinyin and in the NCCA abbreviations. -The "Location" describes the point's horizontal and vertical position on the body, following the recommended body posture, if such is relevant. -"Tips & References" provide the reader with additional information such as definitions from traditional sources, anatomically related structures and finger-tip search instructions. -Most sources agree on the locations of points. "Alternative Locations" gives a variant location when such exists. Sources for alternative locations are given in the appendix, on p. 179. -The text aims at accessibility to the general reader. All special terms ("cun" units, anatomical directions) are defined and illustrated in the Introduction. Names of anatomical structures are shown in the accompanying illustration. -In order to keep the location definitions short and clear, simple terms have been substituted for the classical terminology. For example, a point located on the upper border of an organ is described as "superior to..." instead of "on the superior border of...." A point located directly above a site is described as "vertically superior to...," or, if a cun measure is given: "X cun superior to...."

Acupuncture has been practiced for more than 2500 years in the Western Pacific region and has become a global therapeutic method in recent decades. However, it was reported that acupuncturists differed by up to 25% in the acupuncture points they used, raising doubts and uncertainty regarding the efficacy and safety of acupuncture treatment, as well as causing difficulties in the fields of acupuncture research and education. Member States therefore increasingly began to demand standardization in acupuncture point locations. Responding to this request, the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office initiated a project to reach consensus on acupuncture point locations and thus convened 11 serial meetings resulting in these guidelines. This Standard acupuncture point locations in the Western Pacific Region stipulates the methodology for locating acupuncture points on the surface of the human body, as well as the locations of 361 acupuncture points. The Standard is applicable for teaching, research, clinical service, publication, and academic exchanges involving acupuncture.

Acupuncture Anatomy: Regional Micro-Anatomy and Systemic Acupuncture Networks integrates Western and Eastern medicine, providing a scientific foundation to acupuncture. By correlating detailed anatomical information with specific acupuncture points, the book opens a window into understanding the physiological basis of acupuncture medicine. Each acupuncture point is described in terms of musculature, vasculature, and innervation. Special consideration is also given to the position of organs, muscles, nerves, arteries, and veins with respect to the acupuncture point. A separate section is devoted to cross sections of the human body. The book is divided into four major parts. The first part discusses the underlying principles of traditional Oriental medicine and acupuncture. The second covers the pathophysiology of the organ systems. The third reviews various disease etiologies and the last part presents common diseases that are effectively treated through acupuncture. Written by an author with degrees in both Western and Eastern medicine, the book’s bulleted format and numerous illustrations make it easy to read and understand. It is a valuable companion for those wanting to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western medicine, as it relates to acupuncture.
