These unique living meridian charts provide a stunning visual aid for all those interested in accurately locating acupuncture points. Meridians were drawn directly on a western body and then photographed, allowing students and practitioners to precisely see how the meridians and their associated points follow bodily contours in a realistic way. They have been designed so that most of the meridians are visible for their complete pathway.

That care that has been taken in producing these charts is evident in the easy to understand colour coded referencing system and in the use of the latest Traditional Chinese Medicine terminology from the World Health Organisation for meridian names. High resolution photography against a plain black ground completes these charts to give a highly professional finish.

With the charts divided into Yin and Yang aspects each chart comes with a coloured coded legend that also included a point categories key; listing the five phase points, yuan source points, xi cleft points, luo- connecting points and back shu points. The completed effect is dramatic.

My congratulations to Thankam Rydstrand and her team for providing such a wonderful learning tool that will be appreciated by students and practitioners alike.

As acupuncture students we spent many hours drawing dots and lines on each other as we learned our point location. These magnificent charts, produced by Thankam Rydstrand and her team, would have helped us immeasurably as we argued over whether the point was here or just a little further along. To be able to see the points and the channels represented so accurately on an actual human body was something we only dreamed of.

Unlike when looking at a two dimensional drawing, when using these charts it is possible to immediately see the relationship between the different channels as well as how they are affected by the musculature of the body. Because of the colour coding system used, the channels are easily differentiated and the labelling of the points is distinct and clear. The Legend and Point Category boxes on the sides of the charts further aid in their ‘user-friendliness’.

It is my opinion that every college of acupuncture and shiatsu should have these charts readily available for their students to study and absorb. They are by far the very best I have ever seen in the twenty years I have been involved in the world of acupuncture and I would like to acknowledge the achievement of the entire team involved with their production. In having access to such detailed, accurate and beautiful charts, students of the future have a great deal to be grateful for.

I have had a look at the charts - it is pretty amazing to see what you have done. I am going to suggest that we mount them and use them at the local branch of The Shiatsu College here in Norwich.

It is really great to see a group grappling with this challenge - I would definitely recommend any shiatsu practitioner or teacher to take a look at these charts...
