„I Ching Acupuncture – The Balance Method“ provides a clear introduction to the fundamental principles of Chinese medical philosophy including Qi, Yin-Yang, Five Phases, the Eight Trigrams, the Early and Later Heaven Ba Gua, the 64-Hexagrams, Luo Shu, He Tu and the Chinese calendar. In this unique book Dr. Twicken presents classic Chinese philosophical models that explain the relationships between philosophy, Chinese medical principles, acupuncture channels and the human body. I Ching Acupuncture presents six Balance Methods. This clinically effective system of acupuncture is based on minimal and distal acupuncture treatments. Moving beyond the basic ‚formulaic‘ practice of acupuncture to become a truly effective practitioner requires not only a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of Chinese medical thought, but the ability to interpret these effectively for diagnosis and treatment. The author then introduces the Balance Method of approaching treatment, and systematically presents the charts and references upon which the practitioner can rely, and a comprehensive explanation of the methods to be used to identify the correct treatment. This book is a valuable and effective acupuncture system that can complement any practice. It is essential for the clinic and also guiding the practising acupuncturist to a much deeper understanding of their discipline. This book will constitute an invaluable tool for acupuncturists at all stages of their career.
