How many acupuncture points are there?

400 standard points

It is widely known the fact that acupuncture points are exact locations on the body used for treatment in acupuncture and other treatment systems related to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Not too many people know that there are 400 standard acupuncture body points.   Needless to say, there are additional points on the ear and scalp which have their own system of points.  The good news is that almost all patients do receive benefit from an appropriate course of acupuncture treatments.
