"Publication of an English translation of "Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine" is an important step toward assuring that a process of serious questioning will take place and that the medical dialogue between East and West will have lasting importance and conscious direction. Only accurate information will allow the beginnings of an American or European version of Oriental medicine. A new variant of Oriental medicine must be based on careful and thoughtful study of primary sources, on reflection, and on information. Otherwise, it will be a mutant based on fantasy. Every bit of information received from the Orient must be considered a precious artifact requiring our intense examination.

In 1987, our first book Acupuncture: Textbook and Atlas received rave reviews (e.g., in New England Journal of Medicine). This prompted us to write this smaller, affordable version in order to reach a wider audience. The smaller format has been so successful that we are now into our fourth revised edition. This has given us the opportunity to update and improve the book. For example, nu merous new references to scientific advances have been added. Also the section on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) was ad ded because it gives a more complete picture of the current prac tice of acupuncture. Acupuncture has come a long way since our first book in 1987. There has been a surge of interest in treating drug addictions by ear acupuncture in 450 centers world wide. The treatment of nau sea and vomiting has been so well tested (scientifically) that the FDA (USA) is considering making this the major indication for acupuncture in America. Research into its efficacy for neurologi cal and pulmonary diseases is also gaining credibility. No longer is chronic pain the only scientifically acceptable use for acupuncture (based on the endorphin mechanism).

This fully illustrated guide to modern acupuncture technique explores the foundational skills of the craft from a primarily energetic perspective, showing how perfecting these skills can have a profound effect on the practice of Chinese Medicine. The goal is for the clinician to be able to fully grasp what they are doing on the channels and the tissues with each of the classic manipulation techniques in a way that has hitherto been unexplored in technique textbooks, which tend to focus on the simple mechanics of technique. Organised around the structure of an actual patient encounter, the book begins with the basics of needle selection, moving through patient and practitioner position, to insertion, and then on to the various mechanical actions taken on an inserted needle, ending with the withdrawal of the needle. The skills discussed and described in this book can help expand any acupuncturist's practice through their application. Further advice and information is provided through supplementary online video demonstrations.
