This book details the ingenious use of only five major acupuncture points to effectively treat a wide variety of ills. Written by one of the most experienced and well-known acupuncturists in California, this book is a must read for students and practitioners alike. It is written in a deceptively simple, unpretentious style characteristic of its author, but readers should not be deceived. The theory it contains is profound, stemming from the Four Great Masters of the Jin-Yuan dynasties.

Miriam Lee has been practicing acupuncture for over 40 years. She came to the United States from Singapore where she lived for 17 years after leaving mainland China in 1949. In China, she was a nurse and midwife before becoming an acupuncturist and lived through the Japanese occupation and World War II.
When she arrived in California, acupuncture was illegal. So Miriam worked on a factory assembly line and gave treatments quietly out of her home, later sharing a space with an open-minded MD. In April 1974, Miriam was arrested for practicing medicine without a license. With the overwhelming support of her patients, she was acquitted and made part of an acupuncture research project at San Francisco University where she practiced until 1976 when acupuncture was legalized in California.
Miriam Lee has been an important voice in the promotion of acupuncture and acupuncture legislation in California, has taught hundreds of Western students, and has treated thousands of patients. Today, Miriam is semi-retired and resides in Palo Alto, CA.
