From the Author:

Essentials of Electroacupuncture is a formal textbook, the author has 28 years of clinical experience of electroacupuncture practice. From early 2000, the author has treated stroke patients who came to see him carried in by wheelchair. After 8 weeks of treatment, most of them were able to walk on their own. In 2009, Essentials of Electroacupuncture was published as the first formal acupuncture textbook printed in the United States. The Third Edition Essentials of Electroacupuncture was published in 2013, as a complete and comprehensive textbook of electroacupuncture. Japan has 180 classic acupuncture textbooks, China has 159. The First Edition Essentials of Electroacupuncture was revised in 2016. 35 pages were added to the book. Eight Extraordinary Channels were reconstructed to make it easier to understand and useful in clinical practice. When Extraordinary Channels are used, they interact with Twelve Ordinary Channels, and clinical remissions arrive sooner with less number of needles used in each session of treatment. Also the revised text provides thorough and comprehensive review of classic acupuncture theories, and detailed technical instructions to perform electroacupuncture; it also shows ancient prehistoric diagrams from which acupuncture channels have evolved; it presents organized tables to illustrate the structure of acupuncture channels; it provides clarifying explanations for the intricate channel connections and how they interact with other channels. Ancient Asian histories and philosophies are inserted into certain parts of the book to show the readers how acupuncture system has evolved linked with the elements of nature: water, fire, earth and others. The book has large number of current acupuncture research studies listed as reference to help the readers to relate to the old acupuncture system from the perspective of modern medical science.There are many functional disorders for which the pathophysiology is unknown, therefore these disorders remain untreatable. Stroke, peripheral polyneuropathy, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease can be treated effectively by electroacupuncture, these are just the few out of many. When Four Body Constitutions and Pulse Diagnosis are used as added diagnostic schemes, wider array of diseases can be treated by electroacupuncture. Consequently the realm of untreatable diseases will shrink remarkably. Four Body Constitutions and Pulse Diagnosis are not included in the first edition. In the United States, about 6.8 million people have survived stroke, and 51 % of them have motor impairment per annual stroke statistics released by American Heart Association. By estimation, overall 20 million Americans suffer peripheral polyneuropathy; out of this, 5.1 million diabetic patients are affected by the disease. Acupuncture clinics at well known medical schools teach and practice physically visible part of acupuncture, with  no serious endeavor to explore into much larger invisible intangible territories. We must learn how to deal with the unseen in which more power and truth are stored. When an old science from far away is introduced to the new place, the encounter between old and new will go through a long time-consuming process of mixing, just like transplanting new trees from a distant land to the new soil.I hope you will enjoy the book with a long lasting productive relationship. I will be more than happy to answer your theoretical questions as well as technical ones.
