A Manual of Acupuncture by Peter Deadman
Once in a great while an extraordinary book is published that sets an entirely new standard in its field. A Manual of Acupuncture, published by Journal of Chinese Medicine Publications, is just such a book. Painstakingly researched over many years by Peter Deadman, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Chinese Medicine, and colleagues Mazin Al-Khafaji and Kevin Baker, this book has become the primary reference in the West for the study of acupuncture points and channels.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr Seem shares with us the fruits of 20 years of treating patients with all types of chronic fatigue, pain, and stress disorders. These are patients for whom standard medical treatments have offered little help and who often find their way to acupuncturists as a last resort. Included are Dr Seem's classification of the four major patterns of tight tender points that he finds in such patients, his treatment strategies in each pattern, and many charts and diagrams to help busy practitioners use his approach more effectively. This book is a must for acupuncturists treating any type of chronic condition.
