Bloodletting predates the use of conventional filiform needles in acupuncture practice. Although historically it was a commonly utilised therapy, it has fallen into relative disuse amongst modern practitioners. This article discusses the basic theory of bloodletting therapy and its use in the Tung lineage of acupuncture. One of the unique features of the Tung lineage is the extensive use of bloodletting using specific points and zones on the trunk and extremities. This article documents the locations and functions of these points/zones to provide acupuncture practitioners with a map so that they can administer effective bloodletting treatment for most health conditions.
