Acupuncture Playing Cards are cards designed to play standard card games such as poker, rummy, solitaire, etc. A standard deck of cards contains 52 cards, 4 suits (diamonds, clubs, hearts, spades) and 13 cards per suit (Ace through King). The Acupuncture Playing Cards have 5 suits (elements), and 12 cards per suit (12 meridians). Each card displays the meridian, element, meridian point number, and pinyin name of the acupuncture point. Playing with this deck of cards will fortify your knowledge of the 12 meridian circuit, the 60 acupuncture points of the 5-Shu category, and the 5 Element cycles.
