Wang created many new acupuncture treatment protocols useful in the treatment of chronic, difficult-to-treat conditions, including paralysis, and atrophy due to organic disease (MS, lupus, ALS, etc.), cerebrovascular accident, and traumatic injury to the spinal cord. This book is an account of his special acupuncture theories and contains his most effective treatment protocols, representative case histories, and Wang's analysis of point selection. It's also a mine of step-by-step acupuncture protocols you can use in your clinic.
