Some time ago, maybe around 2018 I looked up and I thought I saved the date and book where Ashi points were first discussed but I can't seem to find it. I attempted googling the info again but this time without success. Does anyone know when ashi points first appeared in Chinese texts?

This research article titled, "The return of the “Ashi Point” from its journey East and its modern theoretical reconstruction", gets into some of the historical details. The term was generally thought to have first been used in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) within the Qiān Jīn Yào Fāng "Thousand Ducat Prescriptions" text.top Login/Comment
