Practical Guide to Acupoints

Author(s): Ilaira Bouratinos; Chris Jarmey

General Health

This exceptionally well-illustrated guide to the location and properties of acupoints has been fully revised and updated, and now includes all the major points. An understanding of acupoints is vital not only for acupuncturists but also for bodyworkers. This user-friendly manual contains current, comprehensive information for both groups, with special emphasis on how shiatsu and tuina therapists can best utilize "point knowledge" in their practice.

In keeping with normal practice, the authors give the precise anatomical location of a point and illustrate it with a dot, along with alternative locations where relevant. However, the book goes further by delineating the larger area where the point can be activated by pressure, gua sha, and other means. In addition, it explains the optimum physical position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation. The book also documents the distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation, and differentiates between pressure and needle application where appropriate.
