Acupressure Points Charts
Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body. The number of acupuncture points was originally established to correspond to the number of days in the year, i.e. 365.
These points were mapped to 14 major channel lines, one channel for each of the 12 inner organs, one channel along the spine (called the governing vessel), and another along the midline of the abdomen (called the conception vessel).
Over time, the number of points identified by acupuncturists has expanded, expanding the acupuncture points chart. There are additional channels with their own sets of points, special points located off channels, and complete maps of body structures by points along with the ears, nose, scalp, hands, feet, wrists, and ankles.
