A novelty to the international market both in concept and realization, this pocket atlas allows the reader to both effectively learn and quickly reference ear acupuncture points. Clear, simple images accompany concise and "to-the-point" texts creating an educational tool for the localization of ear acupuncture points.

The resourcefulness of the book is increased by the inclusion of the projection of the body meridians onto the auricle according to Bahr. Besides, "prescriptions" of point combinations according to some indications are included.

The reader will profit from the extensive international teaching experience of Beate Strittmatter. Through her former teacher, Frank Bahr, who cooperated directly with Dr.Paul Nogier, she stands in the direct tradition of the founder of Western auriculotherapy.
