Description

The PA of Acupuncture provides the reader with a brief overview of the history of acupuncture in China and Europe, it describes the underlying principles of Chinese medicine and how it differs from Western medicine, and it looks at the way Western medicine attempts to explain the effects achieved by acupuncture therapy.

The main focus of this book is the presentation of the 361 classic acupuncture points giving details of their locations, the way they are classified, their actions and indications, as well as the needling techniques to be used. On the pages facing the descriptions, there are precise anatomical drawings showing the paths of the channels and the points located on them.
