What does MINGMEN mean?
It is a Chinese word which characterizes an acupuncture point located in the lower back at the same level as the navel. Let’s have a look at the meaning of the Chinese words “ming” and “men”. Ming (命) means “life, fate” and Men (門) means “gate, door”. Thus Mingmen (命門) is translated as Gate of Life, Gate of Destiny or even Gate of Power.
