Why are there so few Chinese doctors who use these acupuncture methods? The methods are so hard to understand, and it is so complex to calculate the changes in days and hours, that it can't be used practically! Now Dr. Wu makes it easy for you. He does all the calculation and you easily find the acupuncture points by using this acupuncture calendar for the specific hours of the day!

1. What are the "8-Hui" Converging Acupoints?

There are eight important strategic Acupuncture or Acupressure points related to the physiological function of the organs, meridians or certain areas of the human body. There are Eight Extra Acupuncture Meridians which individually converge with these main "8-Hui" Acupoints on eight regular meridians -- 8 of the 12 Primary Acupuncture Meridians. That means that the Primary Meridian System AND the Eight Extra-Meridians Converge in these Eight Hui Points. Doing acupuncture or acupressure on these points can stimulate BOTH acupuncture systems.

These "8-Hui" Converging Acupoints are:

If you don't know where these acupuncture points are located, please Click on a point above and go to a detailed graphic.

  • There are two kinds of "8-Hui" points in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): The Eight Hui Influential Acupuncture Points and The Eight Hui Acupuncture Converging Point. Don't confuse them.
  • Why is there a #9 point? There are just 8 Hui points in total. The numbers for the points are from the Bagua -- the source of The Eight Magic Turtle Acupuncture Techniques. In the bagua diagram, there are eight areas, or "guas," encircling the center, 8+1=9. These nine different zones correspond to nine major numbers of life. To calculate the opened acupoints for a certain date in a certain hour in the Chinese Calendar (Not in Western Calendar!), the ancient Chinese doctors used 9 numbers, matched to these 9 Zodiac Zones, to stand for 9 locations in the human body. Each point in 8-Hui is related to one number, but one point (K6) is related to two numbers. You must do the calculation from the Chinese Calendar. OR, forget the complex calculation, we have done all the calculations for you! Simply use our MNEF Acupoint Calendar!

  • All Nomenclature and codes of Acupuncture Meridians and Acupoints in this website have followed the information and materials, which were formulated at the Regional Working Group Meeting on the Standardization of Acupuncture Nomenclature sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) of the UN, in 1985.

2. How to Use "8-Hui" Converging Acupoints?
  • Use A Pair of Upper-Lower Compatible "8-Hui" Acupoints -- Eight "8-Hui" Acupoints which are as follows: # 1 & # 7, # 2 & # 9, # 3 & # 4, # 5 & # 9, # 6 & # 8 ; These are Five Pairs totally.
  • There are actually just Four Pairs of points because # 2 & # 9 and # 5 & # 9 are the same: B62 & SI 3, K6 & L7, TE5 & G41, Sp4 & P6.
That's all you need to know: 9 numbers, 8 points and 4 pairs!

You Can Learn it Even You are Not a Health Professional! (But we suggest you do acupressure rather than acupuncture if you are not a health professional.)

To select an "8-Hui" Acupoint from the calendar charts always means to use , i.e., you select both the point and its compatible point. For example, if you select point #6 in a calendar chart, then use #6 & #8 together for treatment.
