This is a comprehensive survey of all meridian-based acupuncture points, extraordinary points and meridians of the human body including anatomical locations and an introduction to energetic properties. Attention is given to each of the 12 primary meridians, the 8 extraordinary meridians, the collaterals and all acupuncture points. Students learn the numerical nomenclature of points as well as their Pinyin names, pronunciations and English translations. This course contains both theoretical and practical content. This course is best suited for students in the first two semesters of studies. Some students find that it is helpful to first complete OM121 Medical Mandarin and BMS103 Surface Anatomy, but these are not prerequisites.
