Abdominal acupuncture is a micro-system of the whole body. The three different levels are similar, but different to the heaven, human and earth sequence of the standard meridian system.
The superficial level is pictured as a hologram of a pronated tortoise. Although a tortoise, all its parts correspond to the human body.
- The neck begins to extend from bilateral Shangqu points (Kid 17) and extends up to Zhongwan (Ren 12).
- The tail begins from bilateral Qipang Points (0.5 cun lateral to Ren 6) and extends to Guanyuan (Ren 4).
- The upper limbs (shoulder area) start from Huaroumen (St 24), flex at the Upper rheumatism point (0.5 cun lateral and superior to St 24), and end at the upper lateral rheumatism points (1 cun lateral to St 24).
- The lower limbs (hip) begin at bilateral Wailing points (St 26), extend across the lower rheumatism points (0.5 cun lateral and inferior to St 26), and end at the lower lateral rheumatism points (1 cun lateral and inferior to St 26).
This top superficial layer relates to disorders of the head, torso, upper and lower limbs, disorders of the periphery, meridian and collateral disorders, and acute disorders.
The medial layer consists of the standard meridian system “JingLuo” . It connects both the superficial and the deep level.
The deep level is represented by the bagua figure. The bagua begins at the umbilicus and extends upward to Ren 12, down to Ren 4 and laterally to the Leg Taiyin meridian.
The deep level corresponds to the zangfu organs and is chosen for the treatment of the internal viscera and long-term chronic disorders.
Abdominal acupuncture as a micro-system of the whole body is therefore important because no energy in the HARA is not a good sign for the overall future perspective of the client.
