Automatic location of acupuncture-point is an available way to the characterization of Chinese Medicine. In this paper, the content of infrared thermal image is investigated to mine the automatic location of facial acupuncture-point by the image processing technology. Since user's work is not involved in the location of acupuncture-point, the characterization of facial diagnosis can be greatly improved, which is further favorable to assisting with the facial diseases diagnosis. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed automatic location method of facial acupuncture-point.
