Combining the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Western medical acupuncture, this eagerly awaited book and CD-ROM brings the entire field of acupuncture to a new professional standard. The authors, leading experts from diverse disciplines, systematically guide you though the channels, point locations and trigger points in the body, from head to toe. Each acupuncture point is shown in vivo and then explained in detail, using illustrations that show its exact anatomical location and characteristics.

In addition, you will benefit from state-of-the-art information never published before, including: a universal point localization system based on anatomic principles; a comprehensive discussion of potential contraindications and side effects of acupuncture; and a focus on outcome-based models and scientific studies throughout.

Ideal for those who practice Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as anyone studying for certification, this book covers all acupuncture point locations, as well as the fundamental concepts and methods of this ancient art. It is indispensable for practitioners who need the most complete, scientifically based, and reliable information available anywhere.

Industry Reviews

A valuable reference for physicians and other health professionals with an interest in...acupuncture and its basic theory...should also become a required text for acupuncture students...well-referenced...unique and well suited for learning. --Doody's Book Review

"The colorful illustrations and diagrams and clear photographs caught my attention. The appealing layout throughout makes it an ideal quick reference for locating acupuncture points or reviewing basic TCM theory. For easier learning the major points are grouped by topographical area, again with clear anatomical illustrations. A CD-ROM that makes an excellent quick reference tool with similar photographs and anatomical illustrations of point location accompanies [the book]. The section on diagnosis and treatment of interal disease provides useful treatment strategies, with point selection, combinations and needling methods...Its strength lies in its presentation, with large color diagrams, logical tables and flow charts...appealing for its logical and well-illustrated overview of TCM theory and pattern differentiation."--The Lantern: A Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine
