A website for traditional/classical acupuncturists that calculates open acupuncture points based on a variety of traditional theoretical models.

Having created AcuRhythm mobile apps for both Apple iOS and Android, I have decided to create a web version which will be the only one actively developed with new functionality from now on.

Please note this website is designed for experienced acupuncturists. I would highly recommend having an understanding of the theory behind each of the methods you decide to use in your practice. With this in mind I have provided a bibliography of books below which will help in this matter.

Please go to the Settings page to select the Time Zone you are located in so the current time is correct for you. This applies to the Daily Open Points page.
