Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Dr. Mann, one of the earliest pioneers of the modern medical approach, as well as the inventor of periosteal acupuncture, documents his findings over three decades of practice, for doctors who want a modern introduction to the subject. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This new edition contains two new chapters, including a useful discussion of the best intervals to leave between treatments and when to re treat. The biggest innovation, however, is the description of what Mann calls Hyper Strong Reactors. Mann originally introduced the idea of Strong Reactors (patients who respond unusually strongly to acupuncture and who generally do well), and this is now widely accepted among practitioners of modern acupuncture, but now he has taken the notion further by identifying a subgroup who respond even more strongly. [...] This book remains one of the best textbooks of acupuncture for acupuncturists who follow the modern (non traditional) approach." Anthony Campbell
book should be read by every medical acupuncturist, as Mann s observations are clear and actual. [...] It is an addition to the standard teaching of acupuncture, which allows medical practitioners to think clearly for themselves, outside of the strictures of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can apply to a large cross section of medical practice, but in particular it is pertinent to musculoskeletal medicine, which forms well over 50% of most medical acupuncture clinical workloads.

Mann s results are reproducible by other practitioners, ofter to the delight of their patients.

A highly recommended text to have for reference with clear diagrams of the areas of radiation described."Journal of the Australian Medical Acupuncture College, January 2001
