Pictorial Atlas of Acupuncture: An illustrated Manual of Acupuncture Points

Knowledge of the exact status and relevance of acupuncture points is an essential tool for the acupuncture therapist.  The novice may worry that he will have to learn all the acupuncture points by heart.  But experience shows that only about one third of these points at most are actually used in treatment.  For this reason the value of an atlas that provides information about a currently important, but seldom used, point cannot be stressed enough.

This comprehensive atlas, beautifully produced with great graphic clarity, is the result of unique collaboration between German and Chinese experts.

The atlas is also noteworthy for the courage of the editors, authors, and the publisher in limiting the indications of the various points to their application uses.  This is an area in which the importance of the points has undergone great diversification.  These indications have been examined in a meticulous discussion process and redundant or dubious findings discarded.

This pioneering initiative means a substantial gain in practical use, which can only benefit the reader in the practice of acupuncture.
