Grasping the Wind, the Meaning of Chinese Acupuncture Points - 95-14
Grasping the Wind, the Meaning of Chinese Acupuncture Points
By Andrew Ellis, Nigel Wiseman and Ken Boss

Point names, the traditional means for identifying acupoints, have meanings that are, like the wind, hard to grasp. In discussing the point names, the authors examine the meaning, context, and significance of each acupuncture point to promote understanding of the point's use in acupuncture practice. Guidelines for understanding the nature and structure of the Chinese language are offered, along with discussions of the Chinese rationale for naming points and point groupings. The reasoning for selecting the English names is offered so that readers may adapt the names for their own use. Each of the 363 points covered is listed according to the system currently used in China. Descriptions include the name in Chinese characters, in Pinyin, and in English. The classical location according to major Chinese texts, the associated point groupings, an explanation of point functions, and classical energetic associations are also noted.
