This reference text of the RenMai- publisher was at its publication the first database- based reference tool for practitioners and students who work with the meridian system.

The RenMai reference site "Meridians and Acupuncture points" is aimed to serve as learning tool and source of information for practitioners and learners. The editors therefore recommend to only use the content of the work on the basis of a well-founded training course and with appropriate professional- legal status. This reference text should not encourage either laymen, or specialists to "heal" the body by pressing points. The references to indications and symptoms are only to be understood in connection with the integration into the overall system.
