The following information is completely available to you: name, location, indication, function, qualification, explanation of the point name, needling and Moxibustion. All content can be easily searched with Search and Power Search.
This button can be found at every acupuncture point. If you want to use a point for your point combination, the point is stored in MyBasket using this button.

What does Search Option do?
The Search option looks up for search terms typed by you. Type your desired search term in the search box and click Search. ALL acupuncture points containing your desired search term information will be displayed immediately.
Search for “Asthma” shows all acupuncture points that treat asthma.
Search for “ast” shows all acupuncture points that contain the letters “ast,” So not only “asthma,” but also “epigastrium” and “mastoid.”
What Is So Special About Power Search Option?
The Power Search uses almost 5000 interlinked connections between TCM-diagnoses, TCM-terms (such as Shu-Stream-point) and the acupuncture points. There are two dropdown boxes with TCM diagnoses and TCM terms available.
If you select a TCM diagnosis from a drop-down box, related points are displayed immediately.
Power Search for Kidney Yin Deficiency shows all acupuncture points that treat Kidney Yin Deficiency.
If you choose TCM diagnoses from both drop-down boxes, you will get the acupuncture points that treat both TCM diagnoses at the same time.
Power search for Kidney Yin Deficiency and Heart Yin Deficiency shows all acupuncture points that treat Kidney Yin Deficiency and Heart Yin Deficiency at the same time.
Power search for Heat and Liver Channel shows all the acupuncture points on the Liver Channel, which expel Heat.
Opens the TCM diagnoses with practice-relevant expertise on almost 100 Chinese diagnoses.
Use the Shen Acupuncture App to find the cardinal symptoms, causes, and treatment tips for all Chinese diagnoses in nanoseconds.
For every TCM diagnosis, you will have an additional proven point combination for your patients, which can be saved in My Basket for later use and imported to “MyDatabase” for either patients or diseases.
My Basket is the central collection point for collecting acupuncture points for the treatment of a patient or a disease.
Each acupuncture point has this button in the lower right corner. Use that button to save acupuncture points from the Shen-Atlas of Acupuncture, from Power Search results, or from a Point combination in MyBasket.
