A Practical Guide to Acu-points (9780954318840)
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
This book is an exceptionally well-illustrated guide to the location and properties of acu-points. Whereas most good books on the subject give needle depth and other useful information for the acupuncturist, this book uniquely provides additional information for bodyworkers such as Shiatsu and Tuina therapists. For example, in keeping with normal practice, the location of a point is given as a precise anatomical location and illustrated with a dot, along with alternative locations where relevant. However, this book goes further by delineating the larger area where the point can be activated by pressure, gua sha and other means. In addition, the optimum position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure and other treatment strategies is given, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation. The distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation is also documented, and differentiated between pressure and needle application where appropriate.
