Acupuncture Points in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM):
Acupoints used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The TCM theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang and qi (also spelled "chi"). This theory is based on the paradigm of TCM, not that of science.

Body acupoints are generally located by a measurement technique that is calibrated according to their proportional distances from various landmark points on the body. Acupoint location usually depends on specific anatomical landmarks that can be palpated. There are nearly 400 basic acupoints on the meridians. Many of these basic points are rarely used. Some points are considered more therapeutically valuable than others, and are used very frequently for a wide array of health conditions.

Categories of body acupuncture points:
1. The Five Transport Points system describes the flow of qi in the channels using a river analogy, and ascribes function to points along this flowline accor­d­ing to their location.
2. The Five Phase Points system ascribes each of the five phases - wood, fire, earth, metal and water - to one of the Five Transporting points.
3. Xi-cleft points are the points on the channel where the qi and blood gather and plunge more deeply.
4. Yuan-source points are points on the channel from where the yuan qi can be accessed.
5. Luo-connecting points are located at the point on the channel where the luo meridian diverges.
6. Back-shu points lie on the paraspinal muscles on either side of the spine.
7. Front-mu points are located in close proximity to the respective organ.
8. Hui-meeting points are a category of points that are considered to have a "special effect" on certain tissues and organs.
