This unique resource is aimed at both the acupuncture practitioner and student. For the first time you can see in full 3D the positions of 88 of the most commonly used acupuncture points and the 3D anatomy of their needle passage. Anatomical alerts are provided for points where damage could be caused by wrong direction or depth of insertion. A further 324 named needle points can be highlighted in position on the 3D model.
Also included are the most clinically important myofascial trigger points; and for the first time in any publication, their anatomic, clinical, and physiologic correspondences to acupuncture points are shown and discussed. All anatomical structures have descriptive text including musculoskeletal and vascular anatomy, which contains all essential muscles, ligaments, bones, attachments, capsules and vessels (arteries, nerves and veins).
The 14 principal acupuncture meridians with points are also highlighted in 3D, and 42 myofascial referred pain patterns of trigger points are likewise shown along with their relationships to acupuncture principal meridians.
Cross sectional views showing needle relationships to anatomic structures in detail are presented for the head and neck, trunk, shoulder, upper limb and lower limb regions.
