Overview

Auricular Acupuncture Diagnosis is valuable not only to the practising acupuncturist but to all medical practitioners. It is an extremely accurate means of interpretation of a patient's condition. Obtained quite simply through examination of the ear, diagnosis expediently offers the practitioner the possibility to choose the best approach to treatment. In this technological age, with so many sophisticated diagnostic tools at our disposal, it may seem overly simplistic to rely on basic procedures such as the inspection and palpation of the ear for diagnosis. However, all practitioners need to assess their patients personally, and the observation and examination of the ear can provide much valuable information which cannot be detected in other ways.

Key Features

based on around 5000 observations made in both healthy subjects and in patients affected by a large variety of diseases

written by a medically qualified general practitioner who is also an experienced acupuncturist

provides the basic medical information required to interpret ear examination findings correctly

uses case studies to illustrate the practical application of the diagnostic method

describes in detail a number of tests used as part of routine ear examination

gives guidelines on selecting appropriate auricular acupuncture points for effective treatment according to the diagnostic findings

highly illustrated with two-colour line drawings, black and white photographs and over 60 full colour plates

Auricular Acupuncture Diagnosis provides physicians and therapists with an innovative diagnostic model together with the necessary medical information to interpret their findings correctly. It allows a morecomplete and accurate diagnosis of a patient's condition and so more effective treatment.
