...i`m looking for books/charts/dictionaries which will help me - my problem is this:

As a hobby, i`m studying/practicing Qigong and Tai Chi, and wanted to learn all about Acupoints.

I just bought from amazon a really well-illustarted book, but it doesn`t offer one of the main things i need/wanted from it - a chart of a skeleton AND (preferably) or a skeleton with the muscle groups, to better locate Acupoints.

Would anyone be able to recommend where i can find something like this please? (e.g. a book or poster of some sort)

Also, is there a decent (if not contained in the same book) medical dictionary?

I`m trying to learn how to manipulate the points, but the language used and descriptions of manipulation are ridiculous for a beginner: e.g. left to right mastoid process; acromion process; cubital; - or a shiatsu technique (which i have NO idea what the hell it means, on the hand):"...Friction is effective across the fibres of extensor carpi radialus longus and brevis (and brachioradialis) I`m just an amatuer wanting to learn how to press a point, so WTF?

Can anyone PLEASE suggest some good (not online) books/posters/dictionaries to help me?

Any help appreciated!

The best book I can think of would just be Greys Anatomy
