Description

Product Description

Compiled by the faculty of one of China''s leading schools of traditional medicine, Acupuncture: A Comprehensive Text is among the most authoritative textbooks and reference sources in its field. Since its translation into English in 1981, it has become a standard text used throughout the world.

Included are descriptions of more than a thousand acupuncture points, hundreds of prescriptions (both ancient and modern) for the treatment of numerous diseases, and detailed discussion of a variety of acupuncture techniques and modalities ranging from ear, head, hand and foot acupuncture to moxibustion, cupping and surgical techniques.

There are chapters devoted to modern research concerning acupuncture phenomena, and others which critically analyze ancient theory and methodology. The editors have also provided a lengthy introduction to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, a select bibliography of current research published in English, and extensive indices.

My goodness, this is quite the involved book on acupuncture and related therapies. This is NOT the book if you are a beginner in the subject, this is a scholarly tome. I wanted more in-depth knowledge of this Chinese Medicine modality and this book sure has enough for the better part of a lifetime. I had no idea about so much of this and I am not a newbie at studying acupuncture and moxibustion. This would be a great, complete reference book for a physician or student of TCM.

A Very Interesting Book
Reviewed in the United States on March 2, 2014
This book was bought as a textbook for a master''s course in Chinese healing arts. For that purpose, I would recommend it. Although I''m not the one taking the course, since it is a required textbook, I believe it is probably one of the best acupunture books available.

Text book on acupuncture. Very deep and requires understanding many other aspects of the individual being. By working with the nature of the individual, we are able to correct imbalance. That is what we all want and desire.
