In acupuncture, more is not necessarily better. The number of needles that a practitioner uses does not necessarily correlate with his or her results. Practitioners who have studied extensively and have a proper understanding of acupuncture know that if they have properly identified the pathologies and are familiar with the theory of acupuncture, they can often resolve pain with the use of only one needle. The effective use of one needle is both an art and a science. This book is divided into two parts: “General Theory” and “Other Theories”. Clinically commonly seen pain syndromes are also included. There are also explanations of the underlying reasons that a particular point is effective and the theory of selecting such a point accordingly. This will give the user more confidence in selecting the point to use clinically with agility.
