This is a practical manual for health professionals who are beginning to
use modern medical acupuncture. It starts from the assumption that
acupuncture works via the nervous system. Modern research has largely
failed to confirm the existence of precisely localised 'acupuncture
points' and these figure hardly at all in the book. Instead, the focus
is on understanding the principles that guide deciding where to place
the needles and on getting the amount of stimulation right. It is based
on the course that the author has taught to health professionals for
over thirty years. It will be useful for students who have completed
this course and will also interest those who have learnt acupuncture in
another way and who wish to explore a different approach.
