Learn how acuupuncture really got started in the western world

Acupuncture took off slowly in the West. This book validates TCM for those with a "scientific" mind. It is intereasting to see how it started and what the thinking towards holistic medicine was. A good primer. Not a sit down thumb through it type book...heavy and meaty.

Valuable, plain and simple

This is a most valuable addition to any accupuncturist's collection of literature. It offers some of the earliest clinical trials on Accupuncture, carried out by Felix Mann. The book shows his research and findings, discusses the meridians and how they relate to his dermatomes, and generally discusses the TCM theory (which includes the 5 element interactions explained in great detail.) At times, some of the diagrams seem crowded, but the information in this book dwarfs that fact by far. Some of the topics in the book include: -Medical experiments carried out on animals, research statistics -Medical cases as they relate to accupuncture -5 Element theory -Accupoint categories and their meeting points -Pulse diagnosis
