The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points

A Practical Approach - Third Edition

AUTHORS: Chris Jarmey with Lynn Pearce,

The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points is a must-have reference guide for anyone practicing, studying or teaching acupuncture and acupressure

Packed with clear yet comprehensive information and abundantly illustrated throughout, this newly updated and expanded edition contains substantially more information than any other book on the subject. Accessible, lively and highly practical – it’s the only book you’ll need!

This book constitutes a complete acupuncture ‘atlas’, illustrating how to best locate and treat up to 400 acupoints throughout the body

Divided neatly into two neat parts of ‘Theory’ and ‘Practice’, the first part of the book describes the essence of acupuncture from both a traditional Chinese and Western medical perspective with chapters on needling considerations, the principles of locating acupoints, and myotome, dermatome, viscerotome and sclerotome maps of the body. The second part then guides you methodically through acupuncture points of the 12 main channels/meridians, plus the conception and governor vessels and additional non-channel points. Almost 400 points are described in precise detail with text and colour illustrations to include location, actions, indications and contraindications for each point. Everything you need to know is presented clearly and succinctly for ease of reference.

The perfect balance of East and West

Honouring the traditional Eastern roots of acupuncture in parallel with more modern approaches of Western medicine, The Definitive Guide to Acupuncture Points is an essential resource for practitioners of all levels and backgrounds seeking to deepen their understanding of working with acupoints.

The late Chris Jarmey taught shiatsu, qigong, bodywork therapy and anatomy, and founded the European Shiatsu School. He was the author of many books on anatomy and bodywork, including The Concise Book of Muscles (Lotus Publishing) and Shiatsu—The Complete Guide (Harper Collins).

Lynn Pearce, BA., MCSP., LicAc., Cert Med Ed., is an accredited lecturer within the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP), a clinician of 38 years, and an acupuncture practitioner of 31 years. She has worked consistently in the musculoskeletal field and has trained in both Western and Chinese Medical models, studying at the British College of Acupuncture to gain her Licentiate in 1993. She has written in previous books on complementary therapies, and produced papers that are used in the AACP Foundation Course in Acupuncture.

Her interests in particular are the role of fascia within acupuncture and manual therapy and how best to marry these two skills. She is also a trained Clinical Canine Massage therapist and endeavours to apply the theories and skills contained in this book in her bodywork on our canine clients.
