Summary

This book describes the physiological effects of acupuncture, which can be used to enhance traditional Chinese practice. Following a history of the development of traditional Chinese medicine, the first section covers the scientific basis and mechanism of acupuncture, particularily in relation to the cardiovascular system. The second section is devoted to clinical case studies, illustrating that scientific knowledge can be integrated with traditional concepts in Chinese medicine to provide effective treatments.
This is an informative and provocative text that describes the current status of knowledge and challenges scientists to better define acupuncture therapy. It is a useful reference guide for advanced students and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, as well as scientists conducting physiological and pharmacological research on acupuncture.
