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
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

2. How to Use "8-Hui" Converging Acupoints?
- 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
- 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. Click Here for
That's all you need to know: 9 numbers,
8 points and 4 pairs!
- 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
- 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.
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.
