Peter Eckman traces the development of acupuncture in its original Chinese context, then its introduction into Europe and the Western world. His focus is the hidden influences in the development of Worsley-style acupuncture, comparing this approach with the current practice of TCM. The first chapter is a synthetic approach exposing the convergences and divergences of the many disciplines, while the second chapter thoroughly exposes the counterpoint between TCM and Worsley’s five element acupuncture. The Glossary contains a clear review of much of Worsley’s unique approach.
