Manual of Acupressure and Acupuncture:

The Dao of Medicine represents a new step in the literature on acupuncture and acupressure. So far, the indications of the points have been mostly confined to illnesses and disorders. In this book the emphasis is on the positive effects of the points: to maintain health and vitality, to maintain emotional balance and to enhance mental capacities and spiritual power. Especially the energetic, emotional and psychic effects of the individual points are described in detail for both acupuncture and acupressure. In connection with traditional medical indications, this book offers a broad and colourful picture of the psychosomatic foundation of common illnesses and dis-eases. Thus, this manual, for the first time, contains a key of how Chinese Medicine can be an important contribution to modern psychotherapy. It is to be hoped that it will be soon recognized that acupressure and acupuncture are capable of being an important tool in healing the cleft between body, mind and soul, and that acupressure and acupuncture will be integrated into psychotherapeutic methods to a much larger extent than it has been done so far.

The emotional and psychic indications of the various acupuncture points can be seen as a map of mind and soul on the surface of the body. Thus, this book contains a lot of information that is not only useful for acupuncturists and for Shiatsu practitioners, but also for all kind of body workers, doctors and physiotherapists.

The reader finds an exact description of the 361 classical acupuncture points. There is also an appendix of the 25 most widely used extra points. The Chinese names of the points have been translated anew with most accuracy. The drawings show, besides the internal courses of the meridians, the external courses on the surface of the body as well as in their anatomical setting: much care was spent on showing the exact anatomical location of each point. Also, the drawings can be looked upon from an aesthetic as well as diagnostic point of view: they show men and women who represent characteristics of the corresponding organ and element.

The Dao of Medicine is a lively and comprehensive manual of acupuncture and acupressure. The description of the points has a poetic quality that reflects the spirit and the depths of the Tao.
