Books about acupuncture forms

Books on special needle techniques, such as single-needle, double-needle, chrono acupuncture (real-time acupuncture) or special acupuncture techniques or acupuncture types such as Ling shu acupuncture, which are based on classical texts, such as the Ling shu.
Which different types of acupuncture there are in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be found here:
Body acupuncture is the most commonly used form of acupuncture. Here, points are selected via the interconnects, also called meridians, to eliminate blockages and disturbances.
The points are visited according to their assigned localization and examined for tenderness. If the spots are painful, this indicates an energetic weakness or disturbance. This point is then stung by means of fine acupuncture needles. The needles remain for about 20-30 minutes before they are sedated or toned again according to the clinical picture. Then they are pulled out and disposed of.
Ear acupuncture (OAP) is very easy to use and can be done with acupuncture needles, permanent needles or permanent seeds. The ear already indicates the diseases of the body or organs, so that the corresponding points are easy to find. Especially in addictions and painful disorders of the musculoskeletal system, the OAP can be used very successfully. The ear reflects the human body as an upturned embryo in the ear.
Yamamoto’s cranial acupuncture (YNSA) was developed by the Japanese doctor. Toshikatsu Yamamoto developed for the treatment of neurological disorders. Certain areas on the head called somatopes are successfully used for the treatment of stroke, brain injury and migraine. The palpation of the cervical and abdominal zones also gives indications of energetic blockages.
Hand acupuncture, also known as Su Jok acupuncture, has existed for about 25 years. The method is based on the assumption that all structures of the organism have a projection on their hands and feet, including the acupuncture meridians of the Indian chakra system. This form of treatment is very effective especially in acute cases.
