A practical pocket guide to the key acupuncture points that aid the treatment of many common conditions
Guo Changqing Guoyan and Zhaiwei Liu Naigang are professors of the School of Acupuncture and Massage of Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The authors provide information on acupuncture point location, needling technique, and functions and indications for point use... Acupuncture point names are provided in both Chinese an English. Clear information is provided on how to accurately locate and needle each of these, and on the application of moxibustion. The functions and indications of the points are also clearly and succinctly stated. The layout is logical and easy-to-use, and illustrations that enhance the written content are used frequently throughout, allowing the reader to locate points precisely. The Pocket Handbook of Particularly Effective Acupuncture Points for Common Conditions provides a useful pocket-sized reference tool for those with a working knowledge of the TCM approach to acupuncture treatment in the clinical setting, and as such, would make a helpful addition to a workplace or personal reference collection. -- Extended Scope Physiotherapist in Trauma Management, Royal Liverpool University Hospital * Journal of Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists *
