    great book

    this is a very good book. It is very detailed in its directions and explinations. However it should be known that this is also a VERY clinical book and should not be taken lightly. DOnot try these techniques without someone around who knows what they are doing! otherwise this is a great reference book if your wanting to know more on chinese medicine. I found it very facinating!!
