This book by Skya Gardner-Abbate provides a step-by-step introduction
and practical guide to palpation as a method of assessment, diagnosis and treatment
within the context of Oriental medicine, and in particular Japanese acupuncture practice.
Leading the reader through the how and what of touch,
around the abdomen (or hara) and other key ar-eas of the body,
the author also explores key acupuncture points for clearing these areas, as well as Japanese needle techniques.
The aim of the book is to allow the reader to have a more vivid and sensitive feel for what lies below acupuncture meridians and points, and to be able to assess and treat a very wide variety of clinical conditions –
with an understanding of the individual patient – successfully.
