FINDING EFFECTIVE ACUPUNCTURE POINTS
By Shudo Denmei
Though there are many books about acupuncture points, there are few that provide descriptions from expert practitioners on selection, location, and clinical utility of the points themselves. Shudo Denmei, one of Japan’s master teacher-practitioners, has selected 160 of his favorite points and describes how to use palpation to find the points and determine if they are active. He identifies the particular conditions for which each point is best suited, rather than noting all possible indications. With unique insight and evocative stories drawn from his decades of experiences, he brings these points into vivid focus, allowing readers to “peer over the shoulder” of a master clinician.
