This is the book professionals have been asking for! For the first time, a single pocket atlas covers all the major body and ear acupuncture points, as well as an extensive coverage of trigger points. Detailed descriptions of the localization, needling depth, indications, and functions of each point are provided. The different schools of ear acupuncture (e.g. Chinese v. Nogier), often a source of confusion for many practitioners, are presented side-by-side, enhancing this book's usefulness as a daily reference guide. This second edition includes an updated and expanded section on trigger points with 30 additional full-color images.
The authors come from diverse specialties, giving you the most complete and accurate information available. Acupuncture points are described using the "visual-didactic processing system", which is rapidly gaining praise and recognition for its easy-to-use format. The clearly written text is augmented by high-quality color images.
The Color Atlas of Acupuncture is ideal as a quick reference in your daily practice or as an exam preparation guide. This wealth of information makes it invaluable to experienced practitioners and to those new to acupuncture. This book is just becoming a classic text in the field!
