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.

Blank screen bug

Cakecake1986

I’ve been using this app for many years the recent update resulting in constant blank loading screen when swiping / switching points. I’m using the newest iPad Pro

Issues with new update

Fionameng88

Same as with last user, with the new update I can no longer use the app. When I open the app the initial load screen appears then nothing.

Great app but some glitches

Schmalta5

This is a wonderful app and well worth the price!

That being said, the 12 cutaneous regions doesn’t work (freezes the app every time I try to use) and the app is often very slow when swiping from point to point.
Please fix these problems.

But otherwise, well recommended.
