Availability: Temporarily Out of Stock. Usually 2 weeks; call for expected date.
In this highly original and authoritative book, Peter Eckman takes pulse diagnosis as the common thread that links and integrates the various disciplines of Oriental medicine, and shows that they are related by a common origin going back several thousands of years. He describes the clinical details used in a variety of acupuncture styles, synthesizing them into a coherent whole, and illustrates the usefulness of this model in practice with case histories.
This ground-breaking work presents a wealth of material not commonly available in English publications on Indian (Ayurveda), Korean or Chinese medicine, as well as other traditions of Oriental medicine, and includes the only thorough presentation of Korean Constitutional Acupuncture in English, based on the author's personal study under its originator.
