Acupuncture Patterns & Practice

Zhao Jingyi
Li Xuemei

Acupuncture Patterns & Practice is a practical, clinically oriented exposition of traditional Chinese diagnosis and acupuncture therapy. The book consists of nine series of cases, each devoted to a type of disorder that is commonly seen in the acupuncture clinic: common cold, cough, dizziness, headache, lower back pain, painful obstruction (bi), wind-stroke, insomnia and palpitations.

In each of the 40 illustrative case histories the authors provide a step-by-step method for applying the traditional Chinese diagnostic art of differentiation of patterns to these clinical problems. More than 80 charts graphically illustrate the material in the case histories, and each chapter concludes with a diagnostic master chart.

American Journal of Acupuncture

"An excitingly fresh approach to TCM diagnosis and acupuncture therapy . . . Highly recommended."
