ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE

Anthony Campbell

Book cover

Description

This is a practical manual for health professionals who are beginning to use modern medical acupuncture. It starts from the assumption that acupuncture works via the nervous system. Modern research has largely failed to confirm the existence of precisely localised 'acupuncture points' and these figure hardly at all in the book. Instead, the focus is on understanding the principles that guide deciding where to place the needles and on getting the amount of stimulation right. It is based on the course that the author has taught to health professionals for over thirty years. It will be useful for students who have completed this course and will also interest those who have learnt acupuncture in another way and who wish to explore a different approach.
