Acupuncture Points: Images & Functions

The author has compiled descriptions of the images and functions of approximately 250 acupoints. Each discussion includes: location, classification, image, functions, associated indications, and contraindications. A separate chapter presents descriptions of traditional functions and associated points organized in table form. A dictionary identifies the characters used in point names and the different points that contain each character. There is an index of points arranged by channel with alphanumeric identification, pinyin, and English translation. Both classical and modern sources are referenced. The text sheds considerable light on function descriptions.

Acupuncture Energetics: Workbook for Diagnostics & Treatment

The author describes a variety of acupuncture treatment strategies, including local-distal points, mu-shu points, source and connecting luo points, five element and five shu points, xi-cleft points, and points for qi, blood, and fluid. The treatments are accompanied by an explanation of yin/yang and the five phases, a description of a nine-step process for energetic evaluation and diagnosis, and a review of zang fu patterns. The exercise questions that follow aid students in practicing diagnosis by following an outline for sample case studies; an answer key is in the appendix.

Acupuncture, A Comprehensive Text

One of the first English-language reference works on acupuncture points, this text has greatly contributed to the development of acupuncture outside of China. The introduction covers the main elements of diagnosis and treatment, while the main part of the text is a modern point reference work developed by the Shanghai College of TCM. Covering fundamental information for the practice of acupuncture, this book is one of the handful of English-language texts to have been given scholarly recognition, as well as being required reading for U.S. licensure examinations.

Book of Acupuncture Points

There is an essential difference between this book and the other point books available, one of considerable value to practitioners. The book is concerned with neither the basic theories of traditional Chinese medicine nor the summarization of acupuncture for general purposes. Rather, it is a formulary and clinical reference developed from the clinical tradition of Ching Tan An, Tsang Tien Chi, and Tin Yau So. It uniquely portrays the teacher-to-apprentice system of instruction, a system that played an important role in the transmission of clinical information prior to the synthesis of TCM in the post-war period.
