Abstract

Ten anatomical features, most of which are associated with peripheral nerves, are considered to contribute to the formation of acupuncture points. The ten features are described in a sequence in which the first listed feature contributes most to make an acupuncture point becoming active in pain areas, whereas the feature listed last contributes least in doing so.
