The best way to learn the art of Oriental Medicine is by direct transmission in the clinic - seeing, feeling, sensing, and being part of the treatment process - through a relationship with someone familiar with the road you are on. A Long Road: An Acupuncture Travelogue provides snapshots of steps along the road by the author in his development over many years as a busy practitioner. The real sense of living, dynamic treatment is conveyed through the author’s obvious dedication and delight in pursuing and transmitting understanding of this art. The more so by the inclusion of conversation transcripts between the author and his students through which the reader is offered the chance to benefit from a sense of the sensei/ deshi (student/ teacher) relationship. In-depth articles cover specific conditions, treatment concepts, diagnostic nuance, case histories and discussion on point meaning and use. The classical texts are explored with translation & commentary and brought to vibrant clinical relevance to the extent that the text could almost be viewed as a clinical work-book. To be consulted, for inspiration and guidance – and to be sweated over in study – but mostly (and importantly) in clinical practice. This text is recommended for practitioners of all ‘styles’ or ‘methods’ as a path away from the unfortunate tendency to intellectualize oriental medicine and thus trap it in the classroom or lecture theatre. The reader is offered a bridge between classical theory/ training, and the vibrant reality of the clinical practice of acupuncture, moxabustion and traditional massage.

Edward Obaidey graduated from the Tokyo Therapeutic Institute in 1990, and has a busy practice in Tokyo. He is the founder of the Japanese Acupuncture and Moxibustion Skills Foundation, an organisation dedicated to the practice and preservation of traditional Oriental Medicine, and has given seminars in England, Australia, Canada, Japan and America. He is privileged to have studied in apprenticeship under Misao Takenouchi sensei and with his current teacher, Masakazu Ikeda sensei for whom he has assisted in the presentation of many seminars abroad. In keeping with his traditional training, Mr. Obaidey’s clinic is a centre both of healing, and of the continuous learning and development of his students, visitors and himself. Edward Obaidey translated “The Practice of Japanese Acupuncture and Moxibustion: Classic Principles in Action” (Eastland Press; ISBN: 0-939616-43-2) by Masakazu Ikeda sensei. This text is highly recommended as an in-depth introduction to classical acupuncture in Japan. The only other of Ikeda sensei’s many books currently available in English (also recommended) is “Integration of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine: Theory and Practice” (ISBN: 978-0-578-06534-2).
