The Complete Guide to Acupuncture
Succinctly, the dictionary defines the ancient, mysterious Chinese healing science of acupuncture as "the puncturing of the skin or tissue by a needle for the relief of pain" But this quick description does not take into account the vast interest in this unknown and often misunderstood method of treatment of human ills that has come down thorough the ages in virtually unchanged form.
Masaru Toguchi is an acupuncturist of Japanese descent who lives in Santa Monica and numbers among his patients many of the leading actors and actresses in neighboring Hollywood. In this book, THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO ACUPUNCTURE, he sets forth the history of acupuncture, its practice and techniques, the scientific basis for it and a step-by-step description of the entire procedure. Also included in this definitive volume are charts and diagrams as supportive evidence of the skills that the author has learned from his grandfather who practiced the art in Japan.
