THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO ACUPUNCTURE POINTS | A Practical Approach Fourth Edition

The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points is a must-have reference guide for anyone practising, studying or teaching acupuncture and acupressure.

Packed with clear yet comprehensive information and abundantly illustrated throughout, this newly updated and expanded edition contains substantially more information than any other book on the subject. Accessible, lively and highly practical – it’s the only book you’ll need!

A complete reference atlas of acupuncture and acupressure points, this newly updated guide by renowned shiatsu, qigong, and bodywork teacher Chris Jarmey with experienced acupuncture clinician Lynn Pearce illustrates how to best locate and treat nearly 400 acupoints throughout the body. Full-color throughout and abundantly illustrated, this fourth edition is updated to offer comparisons of Eastern and Western teaching models as well as new theoretical material to help instill intuitive understanding for students and early practitioners of acupuncture.

The first part of the book, “Theory,” describes the essence of acupuncture from both traditional Chinese and Western medical perspectives with chapters on needling considerations, the principles of locating acupoints, and myotome, dermatome, viscerotonic, and sclerotome maps of the body. The second part, “Practice,” then guides the reader methodically through acupuncture points of the 12 main channels/meridians, plus the conception and governor vessels and additional non-channel points. The locations of nearly 400 points are described in precise detail and clearly illustrated through color diagrams, along with explanations of each point’s actions, indications, and contraindications.

Honouring the traditional Eastern roots of acupuncture in parallel with more modern approaches of Western medicine, The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points is an essential resource for practitioners of all levels and backgrounds seeking to deepen their understanding of working with acupoints.
