Major new versions of A Manual of Acupuncture phone apps and Online Edition on the way!


Update March 2018:

We are working very hard putting the finishing touches to a major update of A Manual of Acupuncture Online Edition. Features will include:

• Brand new, much-improved navigation.

• Mobile phone (iOS and Android) and tablet compatibility, as well as any laptop/desktop computer.

• Improved notes feature.

• Improved search function.

• All the great features of the current version (point location/channel/anatomy videos, multiple self-testing modules, the full unabridged text of the Manual etc.).


We believe this is the ultimate learning and reference resource available to acupuncture students and practitioners today. Click here for full details of the Online Edition and to sign up for a free 7-day trial (new features won't be available until roughly mid-March).


We also have separate phone apps available for iOS and Android devices. These apps are also currently undergoing a major overhaul in order to deal with the bugs some people have experienced (especially on the Android version), and to maintain compatibility with newer phones and operating systems. We hope for a release some time during April 2018. Click here for full details of the phone apps, and for a comparison with the Online Edition.
