This book presents a fun and practical way of learning thefunctions of acupuncture points on the twelve primary and eight extra channels. Students are invited to colour and doodle their way through the sequence of images on each channel in turn embellishing anything they find difficult to remember or recall. Through the drawings the author offers her own imaginative visual representation of each point based on translations of the Chinese point names. The text page opposite each set of drawingsprovides a quick cross reference for the student, with a simple list of the point names and the main functions relating to each.The flexible style of this book accommodates the needs of students from a wide range of schools and traditions.This is an essential learning resource for students of acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu and massage, and is ideal for revision and self or paired testing.

The book itself is very simple. The author consciously chose to describe only some of the points. Moreover, she decided to limit the information to one important sentence about each point. These decisions result in clarity and simplicity, and definitely help in focusing on the presented knowledge...The author encourages the readers to add their own pictures of missing points when they think these points are important. Doing this the reader is not just a passive receiver of the knowledge anymore, but becomes an active co-creator of the book
