This book offers pragmatic and clinically useful information for
physicians seeking to integrate acupuncture into their medical practices. It
blends contemporary biomedical principles with traditional concepts of channels
that circulate energy, or Qi, throughout the body.

Beginning with the history
and science of acupuncture, the book takes you through anatomy, physiology,
pathology, examination and diagnosis, point location, and basic and advanced
treatments. You will read about proven techniques for treating musculoskeletal
pain, migraines, gastrointestinal conditions, substance abuse, and more.
Detailed case studies bring content to life and help you provide optimal patient
care. The text also contains high-quality, labeled photographs and illustrations
for clear localization of channels and points.

Physicians in all specialties who
want to expand their practice with acupuncture will find this text an ideal
learning tool and reference. It is also a must for TCM practitioners looking for
a more versatile acupuncture approach, as well as anyone interested in a
comprehensive and scientifically based survey of this effective therapeutic
modality.
