R. R. China 3 Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA Summary Acupoints, the sites on the body for acupuncture therapy, have relatively special structure that receives the acupuncture signals. Anatomically, acupoints have abundant nerves, muscles, vessels, and tendon. Histologically, there are various kinds of free nerve endings, receptors, Ruffini corpuscles, Meissner corpuscles, Krause corpuscles, lamellated corpuscles, and muscle spindle around the acupoints. The complexity of these tissues are presumed to be responsible for the acupuncture sensation at acupoints.

There is a possibitity that the presence of a large nerve, emerging from deep tissues to more superficial layers, induce changes in the skin resistance. 4 Relatively Specific Anatomical Structures of Acupoints Since acupoints have relative specificity of therapeutic effects and potential physiological features, scientists have presumed that there might be special anatomical structures around the acupoints. Unfortunately, no unique structures have been found for the acupoints in most of the histological studies of the skin and subcutaneous structures.
