Availability: Usually ships within 1-2 business days.
Introductory chapters describe and illustrate the channels and collaterals, the various categories of points, and methods of selection, location, and needling. Ensuing chapters present each of the points of the 14 channels as well as the extra (miscellaneous) points, identified by their English and pinyin names, and Chinese characters. Each point is located in accordance with the most exacting anatomical standards to be found in any Western textbook.
For each point there is a dedicated drawing, followed by regional body drawings. The quality of the 500 drawings is exceptional, setting this book apart from other point reference books. There are also extensive historical commentaries on the evolution of many of the points, plus practical pointers for finding and needling them, and cautionary information about what to avoid.
All of the points are indexed by their English and pinyin names. There is also an index identifying every part of the body reached by each of the channels, and separate indices of point indications listed according to both TCM and biomedical symptoms.
