    The theory of acupoints has gone through a long process from its embryonic form to its maturity, including its gradual improvement in later generations. Starting from the acupuncture literature in different historical periods, we, in the present paper, gave some examples and analyzed the connotation of important concepts in the development of acupoint theory. It is believed that the signs of the establishment of acupoint theory mainly include the standardization of acupoints' names, the specific description of acupoint positioning, the enrichment and explicitation of the content of acupoints' indications, the highlights of the meridian theory via classification of acupoints, and the interpretation of connotations of acupoints from a clinical perspective.
