Table 2: Categorized acupoints on the head. The acronyms for the acupoint names come from the names of meridians: GV (governor vessel), GB (gall bladder), ST (stomach), TE (triple energizer), BL (bladder), CV (conception vessel), LI (large intestine), and SI (small intestine). The values in the parentheses are the total numbers of points in the categories. These points are not standard acupuncture points but are introduced for convenience.
