This is an analysis of the numerous studies done in acupuncture research
- a single work which bridges the gap between the art of acupuncture
and the science of how it works. Drawing on and citing studies carried
out both in China and the West, the author establishes substantial
theories on how acupuncture works and challenges Western assumptions on
this branch of traditional Chinese medicine. He assists the reader to
interpret modern research in terms of traditional concepts (meridians,
channels and points).
