The acupuncture and moxibustion therapy is developed on the basis of the theory of TCM with the application of the theories of yin-yang and five elements as well as meridians, viscera, qi, blood and body fluids in analyzing pathogenesis, identifying the location of disease and defining yin and yang, exterior and interior, cold and heat as well as asthenia and sthenia. These aspects are prerequisite to the selection and combination of acupoints.
