Acupoint pins explained

Acupoint pins explained

Acupuncture points are colour coded to show whether they are key points or have balances. They are also marked with bands if they are to be avoided during pregnancy.

The colour codes are useful for looking at the lists of points or in the context of the meridian. The banding is useful when looking at points in the context of a balance procedure.
