By Masakazu Ikeda
Trade Paperback Book
Following decades of study and years of requests and ardent pleas, Masakazu Ikeda wrote the Integration of Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy: Theory and Practice in order to help practitioners determine the proper treatment protocol for each. Once the herbal therapy treatment protocol is known, the acupuncture protocol is determined. If the acupuncture treatment protocol is known, the herbal therapy treatment is likewise already determined. This book brings the knowledge of a lifetime of intense study of classical acupuncture texts and classical herbal medicine texts so the theories of each can be understood and used together for the most effective treatment.
