"This book provides students and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine with detailed descriptions of the images and functions of the major acupuncture points. Images are the mental pictures suggested by the Chinese characters which comprise the names of the points; functions are the energetic actions of the points themselves.
Approximately two hundred fifty of the most widely-used points have been selected for discussion. The location, classification, image, functions, associated indications, and contradictions are listed for each of the points."
An index of points arranged by channel, number, Pinyin, and English translation is provided for convenient location of the points in the book."
