Books and videos about acupuncture and TCM
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a broad field of TCM. Acupuncture is part of Chinese and Japanese medicine. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. Even the prehistoric man Ötzi had tattoos that corresponded exactly to the acupuncture points that would be acupuncturized if he suffered from acupuncture. There are no side effects. Acupuncture has also developed sensationally here in the west due to its healing successes and has ensured a high level of acceptance among our population. Especially acupuncture for back pain and other pains has an extremely positive effect on humans and animals. Therefore more and more doctors and alternative practitioners want to learn the art of acupuncture. We have the necessary specialist literature for acupuncture training.
Books for Acupuncture education
If you are in acupuncture training, you will need basics and introductions to acupuncture points and meridians (acupuncture atlas) to know where each acupuncture point is located. The art of finding the right point on the body is called point localization. Background information on acupuncture points can be found primarily in acupuncture books such as Deadman’s acupuncture handbook or the acupuncture atlas by Focks or others. Acupuncture books on meridian theory also provide an important approach to understanding acupuncture points, pathways and their relationship to the organs.
Ear acupuncture, Tung´s acupuncture or Japanese acupuncture – how to continue?
With increasing acupuncture practice, you will gradually become acquainted with other acupuncture methods such as acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, Gua Sha or moxibustion. Ear acupuncture in particular is an incredibly exciting field.
The balance method (also famous as Tung-style acupuncture by Sulistyo/Ross and Mccann) and Japanese acupuncture (e.g. by Matsumoto/Euler) are extremely effective for pain acupuncture. There are many special segments like hand, mouth or skull acupuncture. These acupuncture books can be found in the body acupuncture section.
