Abdominal Acupuncture Introduction 


The advantage of this acupuncture method is that it is very painless and therefore very suitable for people who are weak and sensitive to pain. It is a technique developed in China in the 1970s by Dr. Zhiyun Bo. He called her the magic turtle.

The 3 Systems

1 Level. The sky level acts on the SCS. The SCS (Shen Que Channel System) turtle image.
2 Level. The man in the adipose and muscular tissue, acts on the 12 meridians and the 8 extraordinary meridians
3 Level. Earth. The deepest system that acts on Zang/Fu.

The Turtle

The Turtle is an allegory of the world The magic square (luòshu): each individual square is attributed to one of the 5 elements. It also represents the body. Head up number 9, down number 1 for the ground….. This is one of the basic features of abdominal acupuncture.

The Particularities of Abdominal Acupuncture

We use different distances which give us different cuns. Above, below and to the right and left of the navel. Everyone is different and we are not symmetrical.

The Abstract Diagram: Points and Meridians

The diagram explains the location of the points. It is used to mark treatments in patient files. The turtle is a hologram that represents the whole body. The possibilities of use are almost limitless.

An Explanation Of The Method

In this abstract diagram we see all the points that are used with the method of Abdominal Acupuncture (AA).
It's always good to have a few copies on hand.
In my professional daily life, I use it to mark my treatments.

Here is an example :
Rm 12 and 4 in depth (Zang / Fu level)
E 25 on the left was removed because the patient
indicated it as very painful.
It's a simple, yet effective recording.

The unit of measurement  "cun"

The unit "cun" is used as a ratio, but we measure in centimeters!
The distance between Rm 16 and Rm 8 is 8 Cun.
It remains the same, but now we will measure this distance which can be 18 centimeters (an example). To find Rm 12 we divide it in two = 4 cun! And these 4cun equal 9 centimeters. 2 cun = 4.5 cm and we end with 1 cun which measures in this example 2.25 cm. And this 1 Cun applies only in the region above navel.
This is one of the particularities of AA! We learned that the size of the patient's thumb equals 1 cun, right? This 2.25 cm 1 cun may be smaller or larger than the patient's thumb.
The morphologies of the patients are so different, no one is symmetrical. The distances to the right and left of the navel can be very different.
With AA we take that into consideration and that's why we use a ruler.
At first it's a bit awkward, but you get used to it very quickly and this precision will bring you good results!
