Product description

The Five Elements of Acupuncture Poster. The five element theory is the cornerstone of acupuncture and meridian therapy. The poster clearly shows the relationship of the 5 elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood). What a great quick reference for use with acupuncture treatment. The colorful graphics help explain traditional Chinese medicine concepts to patients.

The 12 main meridians are grouped by their element showing their relationships to each other through the Sheng and Ko cycle. The command points "element points" are listed along with the Luo, Xi-Cleft, Source, Front-MU, Back-SHU, Entry and Exit points. Tonification, sedation, and horary points are marked for each meridian. Yin meridians "Zang organs" are in the inside of the circle, Yang meridians "Fu organs" are on the outside representing the inner and outer parts of the body.
