Written by an experienced acupuncturist and educator, this advanced textbook provides strategies which support the foundational energy of a person, including their qi, blood, yin, yang and essence. The book takes an integrative approach, providing insightful recommendations relating to diagnosis and the construction of treatment plans. It shows how needling strategies are connected to rules of point selection, the point classification system, and nourishing the foundational energies of patients. Techniques such as bloodletting, gua sha and the eight extraordinary meridians are covered, and the book is supported by clear illustrations, chapter summary charts and template patient handouts. Ideal for use as a practical manual for practitioners of acupuncture, it is also useful as a student textbook.​

Dr. Skya Abbate offers an insightful and extremely thorough clinical text, covering a full range of practical applications for the budding acupuncturist. Having all of this information presented with this level of care and detail in one place is an enormous boon to Oriental medical educators and students alike. (Ted Hall, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac., Dipl. C.H. (NCCAOM), Full Professor, Southwest Acupuncture College)

Skya Abbate's latest book belongs in the library of beginning acupuncture students as well as seasoned practitioners. It begins with the basics, but quickly dives deeply into more complex strategies to treat common ailments that aren't always what they appear to be. Ms. Abbate reminds us to always look below the surface and acknowledge the root. (Joanne Neville L.Ac., Clinic Director, Boulder Campus Southwest Acupuncture College)
