Essentials of Chinese Acupuncture. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
Essentials of Chinese Acupuncture book consists of three parts and two appendices. Part 1 is an introduction to the basic theory of traditional Chinese medicine. Part 2 describes channels and points: detailed drawings explain 12 channels, extra channels, meridians, and all points. Part 3 is about acupuncture and moxibustion. The technique of working with a thin needle and cauterization is described, and the methods of working with other needles are mentioned.
Essentials of Chinese Acupuncture. Appendix 1 describes the active points of the auricle, and their correspondence to body points, channels, and internal organs. Appendix 2 introduces the reader to acupuncture anesthesia, its features, and its techniques. When compiling the book, the authors tried to avoid school terms, setting out everything in modern medical language. In other sources, a complete list of hieroglyphs has not yet been found. P.S. Thanks to all visitors and founders of the resource Infanta and, of course, a special sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the unique Nata!
