This one-off special event has been organized to tie in with the release of Jong's long-anticipated book: 'What's The Point? An Introduction to the Meaning of 361 Traditional Acupuncture Point Names, Actions & Point Associations' A copy of the book is included in the booking cost and will be given to you upon arrival at the event- you do not need to buy one separately


“All the points have not been named randomly; each has a profound meaning”

(Qian Jin Yi Fang)

Understanding the meaning of a point name is extremely useful for practitioners and students who wish to gain a deeper knowledge of the acupuncture tradition which has been accumulated throughout a long history. A deeper understanding of point names could also lead to further improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.


Using the book as the main reference the 2 day event will extensively explore a wide range of important acupuncture points from Jong's unique perspective. 

This unique and clinically valuable weekend will cover:

  • Classification: Acupuncture points can be classified into four main groups based on the method by which they have been named
    1. Metaphorical Method
    2. Pictographic Method
    3. Compound Ideographic Method
    4. Factual Descriptive Method
  • Meanings based on: 
    1. The therapeutic effect of the point
    2. The primary actions and indications of the point
    3. The anatomical term
    4. Dividing the body part into Yin and Yang regions
    5. The channel flow
  • Applications:
    • Important points & point combinations
    • Key point prescriptions
    • Point selection methods- where to start and how to choose?

Leave the weekend with a significantly deeper knowledge of body acupuncture and the skills to offer wider treatment options based on an accurate knowledge of numerous acupuncture points, resulting in increased treatment success and more individualised client treatment planning.

It is a practice focused event with numerous practical sessions and demonstrations. The aim of this event is not to cover extensive theory but to enable practitioners to leave with a range of skills & knowledge they can put immediately into practice in their own clinic.

There is the option above to pay a £50 (non-refundable/non-transferable) deposit to secure a place, the remaining balance (£150) can be paid on the day.
