About this book

Basics of Acupuncture shows that it is possible to integrate Western medicine and traditional Chinese concepts. It starts with an updated review of the scientific bases of acupuncture and related research.
A short introduction on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine is followed by a detailed account of diagnosis. Main topic is the description of the Chinese systems of channels, functional organs and the most important acupuncture points.
The remainder of the book is devoted to treatment, based on western modes of diagnosis. The methods and applications of needling and moxibustion are described, and the most important points are given for frequently encountered diseases.
