Arnie Lade

An in-depth discussion of the derivation and clinical applications of hundreds of the most commonly used
acupuncture points. 'Images' are the mental pictures and associations suggested by the Chinese characters
which comprise the names of the points. 'Functions' are the energetic actions of the points themselves.

In this richly-researched book prepared in consultation with leading Chinese scholars,
the author presents the images and functions, location, classification, indications and contraindications
for each of the points. An extensive repertory of traditional functions and patterns with their associated points,
organized in table format, enables the practitioner to move quickly from diagnosis to prescription of appropriate points.

Also included is a Chinese character dictionary in which various meanings
of the Chinese characters used in the point names are identified, and different points whose names share the same characters are noted.
An index of points arranged by channel, alphanumeric number, pinyin and English is provided for easy reference to the points in the book.
