A Milestone in Acupuncture History

An Innovation of Traditional Wisdom

An Ultimate Integration of East-West Medicine


This book aims to bridge the gap between classical acupuncture and contemporary medicine to achieve their ultimate integration. Outstanding features of the book are its innovative developments about theories and techniques of clinical acupuncture, a novel systems approach, and scores of case studies. Based on evidence-based reviews, the meridians are actually systems of physiological and pathological reflexes in the body, and acupuncture therapy is a type of reflexotherapy. The systems methodology, together with Dr. Jin’s clinical expertise of 40 years, is applied to raise the reproducibility of effectiveness in treating various indications of acupuncture, especially intractable cases. It is an advanced, practical, and indispensable resource for any acupuncturist interested in sharpening clinical skills, as well as an essential and comprehensive text for medical doctors and other healthcare professionals who desire to learn the essence of medical acupuncture and integrate it into their general practice.
