A clear understanding of the position and functions of the acupuncture points is crucial for acupuncturists, massage therapists, and other professionals of the techniques of body work.
In this guide, well illustrated and easy to understand, Chris Jarmey and Ilaira Bouratinos provide a series of information complete and up to date for anyone who uses the acupuncture points in his work as a therapist, with a particular emphasis on shiatsu and on tui na.
Like most of the manuals of acupuncture, Acupuncture - a practical Guide in acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, guasha and massage - contains the basic information on the insertion depth of the needles and on the anatomical location of the points. But Jarmey and Bouratinos go above and beyond, and also to identify the areas, much larger, in which the points can be stimulated through pressure, guasha, or other techniques, by specifying the type of moxibustion, cupping or magnetic therapy applicable to them. The Authors also describe the best position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, since these can change according to the stimulation method used. Also describes the way in which the feeling is generated by the stimulation of the points you deploy, differentiating between pressure and acupuncture where necessary.
The anatomical illustrations in colour, very detailed, are well illustrated by the complexity of the localization and properties of the points.
Compendium practical to acupuncture points, contains a substantial amount of accurate information and of different approaches to the treatment and therefore constitutes a comprehensive guide useful as much for professionals as for students and therapists scrupulous.
