REVIEWS"Essential for all acupuncturists . . . Destined to be another English TCM classic."

"Sets a new standard for English-language textbooks in all Chinese medical specialties. I know I am not alone in my belief that the future of Chinese medicine is in the West. If this is true, then a revolution must occur in its literature as well, and Rheumatology in Chinese Medicine is at the leading edge of that change."
Charles Chace, L.Ac., in The Journal of Chinese Medicine
"A generous gift to the next generation of acupuncturists."
Joseph Helms, M.D., Author, Acupuncture Energetics
