Description

Anatomical Atlas of Chinese Acupuncture Points: The Cooperative Group of Shandong Medical College and Shandong College of Traditional Chinese Medicine covers the common points with their relations to human anatomical structures and the locations of points and indications. The book provides illustrative 100 plates and pictures that fall into three categories: the first part deals with the courses of 12 channels and 8 extra channels (Mai), points on such channels, locations, and indications. The second part describes the relationships between familiar points and their relative anatomical structures (head and neck, trunk, upper, and lower extremities). Points of auricular acupuncture and their indications are included in the third part. The book further presents an index of the ear acupuncture points. The book will be invaluable to people working in the fields of combining Chinese traditional medicine with Western medicine, research work as well as clinical therapeutics.
