Electroacupuncture presents the theoretical foundation and scientific and clinical evidence for electroacupuncture, as well as giving guidance on its effective practice. Illustrated with informative case histories, this major new book introduces all the information a beginning practitioner needs to know and explores avenues for advanced work.
