This book is an introduction for professionals in Western medicine and for acupuncturists on the use of acupuncture in treatment of schizophrenia and sleep disorders.

Acupuncture has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in mental health and sleep disorders. This book aims to build a bridge between conventional medicine research and practice, which is increasingly interested in the benefits of acupuncture but often not aware of the considerable knowledge and experience available, and TCM/acupuncture where understanding of conventional Western concepts of and approaches to schizophrenia may be lacking. Acupuncture has, for instance, been shown to normalize levels of neurotransmitters involved in sleep and schizophrenia.
Contributions by leading experts from both the Western and Chinese traditions deal with: current concepts of schizophrenia, pharmacotherapy, practical experience, cross-cultural differences, comparisons of TCM/Western diagnoses, sleep disturbances, effects of acupuncture on neurotransmitters, philosophy of TCM, neuroimaging studies, recent research results from East and West on TCM and acupuncture treatments for schizophrenia.

In the editors words: We aim to build a bridge between Western and Eastern medicine. The main goal of this book is to create more understanding and to stimulate cooperation across the borders of the medicine we were taught, in order to create better treatments for our patients. What we can not achieve alone, we might be able to achieve together.

Review:

The editors are to be commended. This book is a scholarly work which calls for the scientific evaluation of acupuncture and the role that it may have in improving the quality of life of patients with schizophrenia --Hagen Rampes, FRCPsych & Flavio Dantas, MD, LLB, MBA, DSc

Peggy Bosch and Maurits van den Noort have edited a book that is clear, comprehensive, well balanced and remarkably complete. This volume will be of interest to a wide circle of readers including psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists and sleep medicine specialists, who evaluate and/or treat patients with schizophrenia and comorbid insomnia. --Jaime M. Monti, MD

This is a most informative and stimulating approach to a challenging problem. It contains essential key elements to understand the physiopathology of schizophrenia; the Editors must be praised for unifying East-West culture into this long awaited synthesis of knowledge from respected scholars. This team work should not only be useful to experts and practitioners but also to persons with schizophrenia and their relatives. --Roger Godbout, PhD
