Acupressure and acupuncture can relieve painful conditions such as migraine headaches, lower back pain, joint disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, allergies, stress, nausea, heart problems, and many others. Today, most health-care plans cover these treatments, making them more popular than ever.

Bauer delves deeply into the traditions and remarkable benefits of acupressure and acupuncture, explains the many benefits of both, describes techniques for self-treatment, and illustrates how Chinese healing can augment modern Western medicine.

one word. Awsome. This book gives you a good sight of life. I've already recomended this book to my friends, and mow im giving my word to the public.
My grandson and daughter told me to buy this book and read it and tell all of my friends to look for it as well. There are a lot of elderly friends of mine that suffer from Fibromialgia and other problems. (I have Arthris and Parkinsons) I would try any thing. It is easy reading and easy for anyone to understand and follow (even this old 75 year old woman!!) My grandson is being helped personnally by this Dr. So I would say that he knows what he is talking about. Good advised and easy guide to use some tips at home. Everyone should see this Dr if they are in the area and get the book.
This book not only explanes the practice of acupuncture and acupressure, but it talks about its orgen and explanes the belief qi. This book talks about the interesting points of a boring subject. Who knew eastern medicine could be so interesting? (any medicine, in fact!)
