Chinese language is pictorial – characters are not letters, they are used as symbols, referring to different associations. They allow coding various levels of information and facilitating the process of storing and using that information. Acupuncture points names use associations with wide range of Chinese culture aspects, such us mythology, religion, rituals, I Cling, alchemy, architecture, astronomy, geography and FengShui, music or literature. Understanding these associations helps in studying and remembering functions as well as clinical applications of points. Six years ago a group of recognized scholars and acupuncturists created a team working together on decoding Chinese points names, checking obtained information in clinical practice and coding it back in a form of symbolic pictures reflecting name, physiology and pathology of each point designed for people raised in Western culture. These pictures, similarly to Chinese characters, evoke chains of associations in mind making remembering the information about points much easier. The lecture is an invitation for You to join amazing journey into wonderful and mysterious world of acupuncture points. Together we will explore different layers of meaning and cultural associations of acupuncture points names, improving their clinical usage.
