A long awaited book - here at last !
As a practitioner of Chinese Medicine I have long waited for a written textbook on this modern version of the art: electroacupuncture.
This book holds a treasure of knowledge backed by an even greater treasure of clinical studies and cases. Book + CD make for a practical tool for studying as well as for clinical work. A must have for all practitioners who work with electroacupuncture! Thank you David F Mayor for a wonderfuly edited resource.
