This is an unpublished work regarding its contents, as it systematically integrates the therapeutic applications of the points contained into the twelve Main Acupuncture Meridians.
The purpose of this work is to enunciate in detail the meaning and significance of translation of each point; its anatomic location and topographical references, and their known functions and therapeutic uses.
In terms of applications, there appears the most complete list of pathological conditions – according to Western medicine, equivalent Oriental diagnosis, and a thorough analysis of the relationships between functions and actions ruled by Traditional Chinese Medical principles.
This well-integrated systematic compilation of quoted knowledge includes author´s investigations on sudden death, heart failure and other medical issues.
A new concept into Chinese Medical criteria is raised up hitherto absent in actual specialty treatises. I make reference to the Antidote points – keys that allow reversing adverse or collateral effects complicating Acupuncture therapy.
Except specific sources derived from Martial Arts – properly referenced and recommended in this book – there are no records of publications related to reversal of undesirable side effects for medical purposes.
This book also includes numerous anatomical dissections that reveal puncture risk areas in major anatomical regions. (Imprint: Nova)
