Embeddable Acupuncture Chart

Rootdown's embeddable acupuncture charts make it easy to put a detailed acupuncture chart onto any web page.

Example 1. Simple Chart

The code below will produce an acupunture chart containing all recognized points and meridians, showing the default settings. Note the width and height settings, which can be changed to alter the size of the chart on the screen. <iframe src="http://www.rootdown.us/Points/PointMap.aspx" frameborder="0" width="500" height="300"></iframe> show this chart

Example 2. Viewing a Single Meridian

This example will produce an acupuncture chart like the one above, but zoomed in on a specific acupuncture meridian (Urinary Bladder, in this case.) <iframe src="http://www.rootdown.us/Points/PointMap.aspx?Meridian=UB" frameborder="0" width="500" height="300"></iframe> show this chart
