“When you grasp the needle, do so with great care, firm strength and caution for the peril, as if holding a tiger’s tail: one wrong move and great harm could befall.”
This uncommonly useful guidebook presents an overview of all aspects of needling, from the parameters of the needle itself to the importance of tr5eating and anchoring the patient’s spirit. Skya Abbate’s clear language and detailed descriptions guide you step-by-step through thirteen categories of disease, ranging from anxiety, geriatric and chronic degenerative diseases to those illnesses thought to be untreatable.
Specialized chapters offer insight and guidance for practitioners seeking to enhance their treatment strategies with additional therapeutic techniques, including moxibustion, bleeding techniques, herbal liniments, infared light, threading, and others. Rounding out the text is a practical appendix with a glossary of Chinese medical terminology, sample instructions for patients, as well as an index with more than 2000 disorders.
Skillfully weaving the time-honored principles of Oriental medicine into the cutting edge reality of the clinic, Advanced aTechniques in Oriental Medicine offers a wealth of simple, yet effective, treatment strategies.
