The book contains one volume and includes contraindication of acupuncture and moxibustion, meridian points, point locations, indications and the therapeutic methods at extraordinary points. They are mainly cited from Zhen Jiu Da Quan(《针灸大全》Great Compendium on Acupuncture and Moxibustion) by XU Feng, Yi Xue Ru Men(《医学入门》Elementary Medicine) by LI Chan and Shou Shi Bao Yuan(《寿世保元》 Longevity and Health Preservation) by GONG Tingxian in the Ming Dynasty. In the paper, in view of the characteristics of version and compilation, the hand-coped book was introduced. It was explored that Vietnam acupuncture absorbed Chinese medicine and emphasized clinical practice rather than theoretic statement.
