Covering basic concepts in anatomy, physiology, and pathology, Clinical Introduction to Medical Acupuncture will give practitioners the confidence to apply acupuncture and ancillary techniques, such as needling, moxibustion, cupping and electroacupunture, to treat a wide range of acute and chronic diseases and conditions. Features:
  • Succinct descriptions of theory and points
  • Tips on using anatomical landmarks to ensure precise point localization
  • Clinical pearls on how to apply techniques for common conditions
  • Clear illustrations and comprehensive tables that synthesize key information on indications, acupuncture points, and treatment plans, ideal for quick review and reference
  • Short self-study quizzes for each topic and a comprehensive final exam that help the practitioner identify areas requiring additional study
  • Discussion of the importance of self-care and cultivation, Qi Gong, and other techniques to enhance healing
  • This book will benefit not only acupuncturists and complementary medicine practitioners, but also Western medical practitioners in family medicine, physical and rehabilitation medicine, pain medicine, neurology, oncology, rheumatology, gynecology, dentistry and other specialties. Practitioners studying for certification and licensing exams in medical acupuncture will also find this book an indispensable tool.
