This course will cover classical points categories. These categories are key to understanding the clinical application of acupuncture points. The categories are described in classical texts and denote groups of points with related therapeutic functions, as well as their clinical application presented in the modern literature. The categories that will be covered are the five shu, yuan-source, luo-connecting, xi-cleft, lower he-sea, influential, confluents, crossing, front-mu and back-shu points, as well as other point groups. The basic application of five-phase theory will also be covered. Prerequisite: ACM5424 ACM5424
