“I remember how, as a student and young practitioner, I was always having to look up acupuncture points locations, needling depths, and indications. Therefore, when I came across my notebook from the Shanghai College of TCM with my teacher’s lecture notes on points, I thought this material might be useful to students. I never realized what great sales this little book would have. We literally can’t keep it in stock at schools and conventions. The success of this little book has caused us to create several other true pocketbooks for students.”
