About this title


Taming the Tiger

"When you grasp the needle, do so with great care, firm
strength and caution for the peril, as if holding a tiger’s tail: one wrong move
and great harm could befall."--Huangdi Neijing

This uncommonly useful guidebook
presents an overview of all aspects of needling, from the parameters of the
needle itself to the importance of treating and anchoring the patient’s spirit.
Skya Abbate’s clear language and detailed descriptions guide you step-by-step
through thirteen categories of disease, ranging from anxiety, geriatric and
chronic degenerative diseases to those illnesses thought to be untreatable.

Specialized chapters offer insight and guidance for practitioners seeking to
enhance their treatment strategies with additional therapeutic techniques,
including moxibustion, bleeding techniques, herbal liniments, infrared light,
threading, and others. Rounding out the text is a practical appendix with a
glossary of Chinese medical terminology, sample instructions for patients, as
well as an index with more than 2,000 disorders.

Skillfully weaving the
time-honored principles of Oriental medicine into the cutting-edge reality of
the clinic, Advanced Techniques in Oriental Medicine offers a wealth of simple,
yet effective, treatment strategies.
