Acupuncture reference (4)


As an acupuncturist, you learned how to choose acupuncture points for treatment. You know how to choose the acupuncture points by the distribution of meridians, by Five-element plus Wei-Qi-Ying-Xue diagnosis, by Ba Hui Xue (Eight-Crossing points), by Jing-Xin-Shu-Jing-He principles. Here are some more choices: to choose the acupuncture points by experience. Some of the experience you may have heard before. For example, to choose Jianjing point for breast infection (abscess) or use Fuliu for dry mouth or extreme thirsty. The data are from old and famous book <<Tong You Zhi Yao Fu>>. It is originally in Chinese. Clinic experience tells us that it is indeed that some acupuncture points have relatively more specific healing effects for some clinic conditions.
