Additional information on auricular and scalp acupoints, techniques other than acupuncture, and reflexology plates, provide a complete overview.
Volume 2, Clinical Indications, offers extensive clinical information on more than 400 acupuncture points, arranged in a conveniently referenced format with a profusion of tables. In great detail, it discusses in numerical order the acupuncture points and provides a comparison of the modern Western and traditional Chinese medical indications for each point, explanatory notes to synthesize this information, offer contraindications, and provide the applied clinical context. A linguistic explanation of the Chinese name, each point's TCM functions, as well as main combinations and their indications are provided as well.
By improving your understanding of each point's application, you will advance your practice of Chinese medicine and build a bridge between the Western and Eastern medical paradigms.
