The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points is a must-have reference guide for anyone practicing, studying or teaching acupuncture and acupressure Packed with clear yet comprehensive information and abundantly illustrated throughout, this newly updated and expanded edition contains substantially more information than any other book on the subject. Accessible, lively and highly practical – it’s the only book you’ll need! This book constitutes a complete acupuncture ‘atlas’, illustrating how to best locate and treat up to 400 acupoints throughout the body Divided neatly into ‘Theory’ and ‘Practice’, the theory part of the book describes the essence of acupuncture from both a traditional Chinese and Western medical perspective with chapters on needling considerations, the principles of locating acupoints, and myotome, dermatome, viscerotome and sclerotome maps of the body. The practical part then guides you methodically through acupuncture points of the 12 main channels/meridians, plus the conception and governor vessels and additional non-channel points. Almost 400 points are described in precise detail with text and colour illustrations to include location, actions, indications and contraindications for each point.
