Tongshu Qi Calendar

The Tongshu almanac is one of the oldest continuing manuscripts in human history. I believe made its way out of China into Hong Kong in the early 1900s where it was maintained there. A good version of it is available at  (see below), and includes options for 4 different ‘open points’ acupuncture choices for every 2 hours. Not clinically always relevant, but interesting.  Also available now as an iOs app called “DYC TongShu”

Liu Ming (co-founder of the Five Branches Institute of TCM in Santa Cruz) helped develop this and updated this information with Tibetan sources to come up with updates and Chinese astrology talks that had been previously posted on this page and emailed – until he passed away in 2015
