This textbook presents a thorough review of available scientific data on western acupuncture, combined with a practical introduction to the subject on its different applications. No existing book draws together such a variety of up-to-date material, and its value as a comprehensive and scientific reference for beginner or practising acupuncturists - both medical and non-medical - will be unique. Authors are drawn from the UK, Europe and USA.
