|About the Book|
Acupuncture is internationally recognized and respected as a powerful healing technique. It is part of a complete system of medicine which has been practised in China for many thousands of years. It consists of inserting very fine needles into the skin at certain points in order to correct imbalances within the body, which can lead to disease or discomfort. This text explains the philosophy behind the application of acupuncture and gives an introduction to the treatment, what can be expected from visits to a therapist, the kinds of conditions particularly suited to treatment, and alternative methods of treatment.
