Hello Qiological Hive mind. Veterinary Acupuncturist here.
I came across something in my recent studies, specifically that Ju Liao with the same Chinese Characters is both ST-3 and GB-29 per Deadman. Per Xie’s Veterinary Acupuncture there are 3 points named Ju Liao, ST-3, GB -29 and a traditional equine point located 1.5 cun caudoventral to the tuber coxae (cranioventral to GB 28 on the horse- not near GB-29). In veterinary acupuncture there is a different character for Ju on the name of ST-3, the other 2 share exactly the same characters as Ju Liao in human acupuncture.
To those of you who read and write Chinese, how do I differentiate these points in writing? When writing for veterinary acupuncture, we will traditionally identify points with numbers ST-3 or possibly number (name) ST-3 (Ju Liao) unless the point location is traditional, in which place we simply use name Ju Liao - would be the traditional location- and we’re going to hope that you have access to some traditional equine AP charts. Did your human acupuncture teachers have any words of wisdom on this subject?
