The different schools of ear acupuncture(e.g., Chinese vs. Nogier), often a source of confusion for many practitioners, are presented side-by-side.
While the terminology of the points follows Chinese standards for acupuncture, the body parts are named following up-to-date anatomical nomenclature, and the description of trigger points also mentions the respective muscle and pain projection zones.
Illustrations include color photographs and clear full-color drawings.
