The author has compiled descriptions of the images and functions of approximately 250 acupoints. Each discussion includes: location, classification, image, functions, associated indications, and contraindications. A separate chapter presents descriptions of traditional functions and associated points organized in table form. A character dictionary identifies the characters used in point names, and the different points that contain each character. There is an index of points arranged by channel with alphanumeric identification, Pinyin, and English translation. Both classical and modern sources are referenced. The text sheds considerable light on function descriptions.
