Qing Dynasty (1644~1911): Period of Simplified Acupuncture

At the early stage of the Qing Dynasty, acupuncture became more simple and safe. 

Wu Qian and Yi Zong Jin Jian·Ci Jiu Xin Fa Yao Jue (Golden Mirror of Medicine, Key to the Needling Technique)

Wu Qian lived in the Qing Dynasty (1644~1911) (little known about his year of birth and death).  He organized a group of people to compile the book Yi Zong Jin Jian (Golden Mirror of Medicine), while he collected many proved folk remedies and personal secret recipes. 
Yi Zong Jin Jian(Golden Mirror of Medicine) is a comprehensive medical book, which includes the Ci Jiu Xin Fa Yao Jue (Key to the Needling Technique), in the form of a concise formula, easy to read and memorize, which is a better reference book for acupuncture.
