Meridian Therapy, the system of traditional acupuncture utilized in Japan and based on the acupuncture classics (e.g., the Su Wen, Ling Shu, and Nan Jing) is a very sophisticated treatment modality that has much to offer and much to teach to Western students, practitioners, and their patients.
The authors, a group of Japan’s foremost teachers and clinicians, have compiled a work that provides a wide-ranging, accurate, and detailed foundation for students learning acupuncture or for clinicians who want to expand their knowledge base.
This is a most welcome work that is an important and pivotal contribution to the U.S. acculturation of classical Chinese acupuncture.
In 1990, on the 50th anniversary of the Society of Traditional Japanese Medicine, the members of the editorial committee embarked on this book project that was completed over a ten-year period.
Among the illustrious contributors, all of them distinguished scholars and practitioners of Meridian Therapy, are:
Okabe Somei, M.D., Aizawa Ryo, Higuchi Hideyoshi, Okada Akizo, and Ikeda Masakazu.
Edited by T. Koei Kuwahara and translated by Joshua Margulies.
