 Acupuncture for Headaches

Compehensive guide to head pathologies from the Classical Chinese Medicine perspective.
Focusing on head energetics as the root of pathologies of the head, this book is the first to take the Classical Chinese perspective. Headache and allergy complaints make up a significant part of patient presentations, and Montakab offers a needed and refreshing perspective.
Headaches and allergies constitute a large part of the workload of acupuncture and Chinese medicine practitioners. This is the first book to look at all head and face pathologies from a Classical perspective and to focus on head energetics as the root of all pathologies of the head. Headaches, allergies, eye, ear, nose and throat conditions are all covered and illustrative case studies included which provide guidance on how to clinically manage each problem. Divided into four parts, the book covers the physical and energetic structure of the head, as well as diagnosis and treatment.

About the Author
Hamid Montakab MD has been teaching and practicing as an acupuncturist for 45 years. He is also a lecturer and teaches internationally at postgraduate level.

This fascinating text provides a much-needed analysis of conditions involving the head and neck. It is a pleasure to read as Dr. Montakab brings decades of careful thought to bear upon a collection of sometimes thorny presenting complaints. I particularly enjoyed the fresh insights from Dr. Montakab's readings of the classics which enliven the extensive clinical reflections. His unique and innovative discussion of the energetics and classical anatomy of these areas has inspired me to weave his experience into my own work. --Dr. Jason D. Robertson, DAHM. Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine

It was a great delight to read this book by Hamid Montakab who has behind him a lifetime of practice, research and teaching. Thorough, well-researched, careful and meticulous, yet with a clarity and simplicity of knowledge quite unusual in this field. Excellent and clear discussion of pathologies, conditions, case-histories and treatments, all in a very open and flexible way - much more akin to the classical Chinese model, than some earlier texts. Not the least is the inclusion of contemporary research at the end of each chapter. --Richard Bertschinger, Taoist translator and author of The Golden Needle, acupuncture practitioner
