This accessible, up-to-date resource guide leads you through the foundations and techniques of acupressure and acupuncture.

 

Acupressure and acupuncture can relieve painful conditions such as migraine headaches, lower back pain, joint disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, allergies, stress, nausea, heart problems, and many others. Today, most health-care plans cover these treatments, making them more popular than ever.

 

Filled with insights into the history of these two age-old therapies, The Healing Power of Acupressure and Acupuncture helps readers choose when to see a licensed therapist, and even provides information about doing certain treatments at home. Matthew D. Bauer delves deeply into the traditions and remarkable benefits of acupressure and acupuncture, explains the many benefits of both, describes techniques for self-treatment, and illustrates how Chinese healing can augment modern Western medicine.
