A Manual of Acupuncture – The Definitive App for Students & Practitioners This is the latest mobile app (iPhone/iPad/iPod) version of the foremost points textbook in the Western world - A Manual of Acupuncture by Peter Deadman & Mazin Al-Khafaji, with Kevin Baker. We hope that you will enjoy the following features: • Every channel and extraordinary point from A Manual of Acupuncture textbook. • English and Chinese point names, point category, classification, location and location notes, illustration, needling instructions and cautions, actions, clinical application and combinations. • Each point includes Chinese tones, printed Chinese characters and calligraphy as well as audio of the Chinese pronunciation (by tapping the calligraphy). • Videos for every point with commentary showing location and needling technique. • Illustrations for all primary, luo-connecting, divergent and sinew channels, the eight extraordinary vessels and the body area illustrations. • All the main point categories (e.g. five shu points, xi-cleft points, back-shu points) for easy revision. • Create your own point groups which you can use to tailor study and reference. • Multiple Choice tests so you can test yourself on all points and point categories as well as self-created point groups. • All points listed anywhere in the App are live links allowing easy browsing/reference. • You can add your own notes to channel pathways and any specific aspect of points (e.g. location, location note, needling, etc) as well as the Point Location & Needling pages in the reference section. • Two search functions. One simply searches point name (English or pinyin) or point number. The other allows you to search the content of every point and, if you wish, specify which channel/vessel you want to search within, which field within a point (e.g. Actions, Clinical application, Needling) and whether you want to include your own notes in the search. • The 12 Cutaneous Regions and Areas Reached by the Channels. • Reference pages including: cun measurements, location and needling guidelines, indications index, glossary of terms • Registered users have the additional benefits of selecting whether to show or hide their notes within the App content, how many points to include in their tests and whether videos play continuously or individually. You can also backup your user data (notes, point groups and tests results) to our server - which means if you lose or break your device you can restore your data to a new one, and, if you have the App on more than one device you can synchronise your data to all your devices.



  • Excellent

    By GoBravos
    It’s the best acupuncture app that I’m aware of, but takes up a ton of space on my little phone
  • Missing video audio, weird app icon buf

    By nurturing ny
    I’d rated this great app as five stars until recent updates...now ALL the video for point locations has no sound!!! It is one of the best features with this app and in the entire acu educational tools yet now became unusable! The new, strange “X” app icon seems another bug. I even uninstalled once to reinstall but still no go. fix ASAP!!

  • 12 cutaneous regions dont work

    By Cosmic Bean
    When i go to browse the 12 Cutaneous Regions, the app locks up and never navigates to the next screen! Please fix this.
  • Unusable

    By Louisiana Rain
    Loved this app. But lately it’s been very buggy. It constantly freezes up when navigating points. This renders the app totally unusable.The developer is UNRESPONSIVE to this issue. Don’t waste your money.
  • Not working

    By backmom
    Since the update, the app doesn’t work. I use this on a fairly consistent basis and I’d really love to have it working again!
  • Great App

    By Arhaticgamer
    I love the App, but now I have some super ugly icon for the app that looks like a spherical X. Much prefer the old one.
  • Update not working

    By Paul R Kerzner
    Can someone please check the server this app is on? I can’t download it yet I can download and update all my other apps. I even deleted it and still can’t download it. Please fix.
  • AWESOME! Extremely helpful!!!

    By Asian Unicorn 702
    This app is really awesome to look up your points, also watch a video. I don't know why people are complaining what do you expect if you watch it on your phone how big can it get? Maybe wear glasses 🤓🙄 It is really helpful.
