Western students and beginning practitioners will find this book an invaluable aid in honing their ability to understand and use TCM. The first section of this book explains in depth how to do a complex, individualized TCM diagnosis, how to arrange and make sense of confusing signs and symptoms, and how to think using TCM terms and statements. Although specifically about acupuncture, the method presented can be used to build a TCM treatment plan using any modality. The second section of this book presents specific acumoxa treatments for all the main TCM patterns, including commentary and explanations.
Special features include:
- The only English language resources with a complete list of patterns correlated to treatment principles
- Terminology definitions included directly in the text
- Summary Q & A at the end of most chapters
- Real-life case histories with both pattern discriminations and point protocols to check what you’ve learned
- Point theory discussions reference specific point formulas
A terminology glossary with Chinese characters & Pinyin
