Presented in a language and style consistent with modern mainland texts, this book offers a more extensive description of meridians and points than may be found in comparable first year student texts such as Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion.
Coverage in Part 1 includes system theory, physiological and pathological aspects and clinical applications of the 12 regular and 8 extra meridians. Also discussed are acupuncture point concepts, nomenclature, andmethod of location and function. Part 2 covers points on the 14 meridians, with appendices describing extra points and new points. The illustrations are adequate but fall short of professional and technical rendering. The terminological explications must be referenced from the text or from standard Chinese-English dictionaries.
