Nov 4, 2009Larry has put together an outstanding reference guide for acupuncturists and acupressurists to verify their point locations and cross reference the points with their functions. Whether you work from an intuitive or palpation base (zone in on the active points and look up what they represent) or an academic perspective (analyze the point functions and put together a point prescription) this is an invaluable tool. Points are listed by anatomical, physical and classical descriptions. Usage is described from the functions of Chinese Medicine as well as western indications. Point illustrations are clean, crisp and easy to use. This book is especially useful for students preparing for State Board or National Exams when you don't want to lug around a half dozen reference texts. I hope it inspires practitioners to expand their grasp of the medicine and aids aspiring practitioners to reach a level of comfortable level of competence from which they may continue to grow.

Oct 9, 2009Great book! This is an excellent and very comprehensive reference to the acupuncture points. Larry has synthesized information from many sources to include the gems you normally only find by digging through lots of references. Photographic illustrations include all the points, branches, and internal pathways. If you're looking for a quick, comprehensive and convenient reference for the acupuncture points, this is your book!
