Most Popular and Practical Combination of Acupoints Description
Jin’s Three Needle (J3N) method, also called three-points needles has been summarized by professor Jin Rui (1932-2010) from 1979 (Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine 广州中医药大学). There are 39 formulae (combinations) of acupoints, which are practical and finely selected. It’s a representative acupuncture school originated in Guangdong province, south China, and then expanded to the whole China, used in hundreds of acupuncture departments in hospitals. In China, acupuncture schools differ in different regions. For example, it’s commonly said that some master’s school belongs to Lingnan (岭南派South), Hai (海派，Shanghai), Jing (京派Beijing), Xiebei (西北North West), Chuan (川派South West), etc. Each school has its own features and special techniques, which make acupuncture a colorful and flourishing field.
The precious essence of Jin’s Three Needles is to learn the theory of making a selection of points. The three-needle combination can be the main structure of most conditions. Contents Jin’s Acupoints Three Needle Formulae (39 Recipes)
