By receiving a Masters of Education in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I have an education in acupuncture. Typically acupuncturists choose points that align with the theory of their school of training or teacher they followed when they were a student of acupuncture. Points are categorized by location and function. Things to consider when picking the appropriate points for a patient include the pattern of the imbalance in the patient, the patient’s constitution, the patient’s diet, the patient’s lifestyle, the season, et cetera.
