Acupuncture: A Stress-Based Model


Acupuncture practice is overburdened by superfluous and questionable traditional theory. This book offers a simpler but, the author believes, equally effective model for the practice of acupuncture. It bases this model on the concept of stress, rather than traditional theories such as qi and the five elements. A method of treatment is proposed which does not rely on traditional maps of meridians or the traditionally described functions of discrete acupuncture points.
