It is considered as the advanced upgrade edition for replacing his previous books about Tung’s Acupuncture prior to 2006. The illustrations of indications, needling techniques and analysis of treatment principles of Tung’s Acupuncture are all much more comprehensive and detail than all previously published editions.
The book focuses on the therapeutic system of Tung’s Acupuncture. Disorders covered in this book are written with point selections and the analysis of their reasons and theoretical principles. The point selections according to the 14 meridians and the reasons explained in accordance with the classic acupuncture and Dr. Young’s personal experience are accompanied too.

They help the readers to choose either the 14-meridians or the Tung’s acup or the combination of both to treat diseases. This is not only a book on Tugn’s therapeutic system, but also a practical book on therapeutics in the 14 meridians.
