  2. Practical Atlas of Tung's Acupuncture
    $49.95

    Hans-Georg Ross & Henry McCann

    This book presents a complete overview of Master Tung’s Acupuncture - a system that has become increasingly popular during recent years due to its high efficacy and concise theoretical concepts.

    Introductory material elucidates the theoretical background and therapeutic strategies of Tung’s system. Key topics include the three main categories for point selection:  Image Correspondence (Taiji), Channel Correspondence, and Tissue Correspondence.  Also described are needling methods, point selection, and the concept of coupled needling (Dao Ma). 

    The book provides a complete and extensive atlas of Tung’s acupuncture including important secret family lineage points. Point locations and indications are described both in terms of Master Tung’s original zonal arrangement and with reference to the conventional primary channels with which they are functionally associated.  A useful glossary correlates symptoms, syndromes, and diseases with the appropriate points or point combinations applicable in each case.

    Over 50 diagrams provide the reader with a reliable quick location guide. Extensive comments on almost each point or point group with cross references to various important classic and modern sources explain the interrelationship between point location, indication, and needling technique.

    This major, new book is a complete, easily accessed and highly illustrated guide to diagnosis in Chinese Medicine. Emphasis is placed on "real world" issues and symptoms, and the text focuses on clear interpretations of signs and symptoms - the practice beyond the theory. Since Chinese medicine diagnosis relies on a subjective appraisal of the patient's symptoms and signs - which form a pattern - many factors beyond traditional Western symptoms are taken into consideration e.g. a patient's voice, the absence of thirst, feeling hot or cold, the patient's smell, tone of voice, glitter of eyes. Thus, Chinese diagnosis is based on a subtle appraisal of a patient's disharmony, which may not be a "disease" at all, and as such requires careful interpretation of a range of nuances. This book will help lead students and practitioners through basic on to sophisticated levels of diagnostic interpretation.
