Tongue acupuncture is originated from the theory of TCM through scientific research. Forty points on the tongue are discovered that correspond to organs and certain parts of the body. The findings indicate that the patient with encephalopathy is accompanied by the pathological swelling sublingual fold. The sublingual fold is correlated with spinal and limbs lesions. Tongue acupuncture provides new approaches to treat many diseases. This paper introduces the determined points, manipulation skills and the theory of tongue acupuncture. The applications of PET, fMRI and VEP in tongue acupuncture are covered in this paper.
