The book "Relieving Pain with Acupressure" is a short and sweet book -- to the point, telling you what you need to know to relieve pain, without overwhelming you with too much information. It tells you how to perform acupressure and provides diagrams to follow. The book covers over 50 common pain/ailment complaints. They are alphabetized and one per page, so most things are very easy to find. I was very pleased to find that some attention is also given to children's disorders. The author also includes aromatherapy information for each ailment and optimal time frames that healing can occur. Overall, I like this book except for the fact that there are only skeletal diagrams and no pictures of the points on a real person. I found it hard to translate some of the acupressure points from the skeleton to my body. That is why I think this book is best as a companion book to other acupressure books, not a sole source of information. The other acupressure book I have is "Acupressure's Potent Points", by Michael Reed Gach. That book makes the points much easier to find, since it has photos of real people demonstrating the points. It, however, covers neither the aromatherapy nor the children's disorders. Both books contain information on ailments that are not in the other. That is why I like them both.
