Acupuncture in Latin means "sticking with the needle". Each of the 409 important acupuncture points is presented with an anatomical graphic, an overview of the meridian, and a photo showing the needle placement. The combination of Chinese sources and the author's therapeutic experiences provides a sensible balance between the most important indications and practical needs. The names, properties, and applications of the individual acupuncture points have been revised on this basis. Far-Eastern healing methods and Western observation techniques create a bridge between Asian and Western views of acupuncture. The Pictorial Atlas of Acupuncture not only provides beginners with an overview of the most important acupuncture points, but experienced practitioners can also learn about seldom-used acupuncture points and thus extend their knowledge.
