The State Standard for the Location of Acupoints presents a thorough and accurate location of the points of the 14 meridians and a part of the extra points. The charts respectively show names and locations of meridians and acupoints on the front, back and lateral sides of the human body, along with the international standard nomenclature and alphanumeric code. The booklet accompanying the charts describes in detail names and locations of 409 points (361 meridian points and 48 extra points) to facilitate the use of the charts. The acupuncture nomenclature in this state standard is based on the Standard Acupuncture Nomenclature appraised and approved by the WHO Scientific Working Group to Adopt a Standard International Acupuncture Nomenclature.
