An Introduction to Western Medical Acupuncture Reviews


"Written by a trio of very experienced acupuncture practitioners, clinicians and researchers, the book is a 'one-stop shop' in Western medical acupuncture...I am confident that it will be able to stand on its own and establish itself as THE modern manual of medical acupuncture. I do not think I will stop recommending it."
