The field of Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion has a history, dating back thousands of years to the ancient past. The Internal Classic, written during the Warring States Period (484-221 B.C.), makes up 70 to 80 percent of the coverage on acupuncture and moxibustion. A Classic of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, compiled by Huang Fumi during the Jin Dynasty on the basis of The Internal Classic. The Illustrated Chart of Acupoints and Therapeutic Importance of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is regarded as an authoritative monograph in China and has become an important book to be shared with the world. Following the publication of this classic, there appeared a number of famous acupuncturists in different dynasties, such as Sun Simiao (581 -682) during the Tang Dynasty. Wang Weiyi (987-1067) during the Song Dynasty. Hua Boren (the fourteenth century) during the Yuan Dynasty and Gao Wu and Yang Jiz'.3u (the sixteenth century) during the Ming Dynasty. They all made brilliant contribution to the development of acupuncture and moxibustion. After the founding of the People's Republic of China, the field of acupuncture and moxibustion was rejuvenated with the formulation of the policy to develop traditional Chinese medicine. In the subsequent decades, following the essential of The Internal Classic and Classic on Medical Problems, we have created many new acupuncture methods, thus inheriting and developing the sciences of acupuncture and moxibustion.
