Translating "秉風", acupuncture point SI-12
The reasoning for translating "秉風" as "Handling Wind" from Chinese into English. This is the original name of acupuncture point SI-12 (Small Intestine 12).
Explanation of the point name
This point is indicated for treating Wind, or for a person to handle focusing on things that move as by wind.
Other translations have 'Grasping the Wind'. Even though there's something poetic about that name, it's hard to imagine anyone actually trying to grasp wind, as it's not really a question whether it's possible to hold air with ones hands. Dictionary meanings for 秉 by no means prioritize 'grasping' as a translation option.
