by Hans-Ulrich Hecker, Angelika Steveling, Elmar Peuker, Jorg Kastner, Kay Liebchen
Publisher: Thieme Medical Publishers

This is the book professionals have been asking for! For the first time, a single pocket atlas covers all the major body and ear acupuncture points, as well as the most commonly occurring trigger points. Detailed descriptions of the localization, needling depth, indications, and functions of each point are provided. The different schools of ear acupuncture (e.g. Chinese v. Nogier), often a source of confusion for many practitioners, are presented side-by-side, enhancing this book's usefulness as a daily reference guide.
The authors come from diverse specialties, giving you the most complete and accurate information available. Acupuncture points are described using the "visual-didactic processing system", which is rapidly gaining praise and recognition for its easy-to-use format. The clearly written text is augmented by high-quality, color images.

The Atlas of Layered Anatomy of AcupointsThe Atlas of Layered Anatomy of Acupoints
by Gau Hualing

Acupuncture is an important technique of traditional Chinese medicine for the prevention and cure of diseases, and the promotion of bodily health. However until now there has never been a book specially introducing to foreigners where the acupoints are actually located under the skin, how deep they are and in what direction they go. "The Atlas of Layered Anatomy of Acupoints" introduces the distribution, direction and depth of more than 300 acupoints on the human body layer by layer, from the skin, muscles,blood vessels, nerves and skeleton to the viscera.
This book also includes the names of the acupoints, the main diseases treatable at each acupoint, basic knowledge of acupuncture, and the precautions to be taken when locating points and applying acupuncture techniques. Hence it is an ideal reference book for medical workers and others interested in acupuncture.

Acupuncture,Meridian Theory,& Acupuncture Points Acupuncture Meridian Theory & Acupuncture Points
by Li Ding

Presented in a language and style consistent with modern mainland texts, this book offers a more extensive description of meridians and points than may be found in comparable first year student texts such as Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion.
Coverage in Part 1 includes system theory, physiological and pathological aspects and clinical applications of the 12 regular and 8 extra meridians. Also discussed are acupuncture point concepts, nomenclature, andmethod of location and function.
Part 2 covers points on the 14 meridians, with appendices describing extra points and new points. The illustrations are adequate but fall short of professional and technical rendering. The terminological explications must be referenced from the text or from standard Chinese-English dictionaries.

Finding Effective Acupuncture PointsFinding Effective Acupuncture Points
by Denmei Shudo, Shudo Denmei (Translator), Stephen Brown (Translator)

There are many books about acupuncture points, but what is lacking are descriptions by expert practitioners of how they themselves actually go about selecting, finding, and using the points. This type of book would allow the reader to "peer over the shoulder" of the expert to find out what they really do in the clinic. Finding Effective Acupuncture Points does just that. Shudo Denmei, author of Japanese Classical Acupuncture: Introduction to Meridian Therapy, and a leader of the meridian therapy movement in Japan, has selected about 160 of his favorite points, the ones he actually uses in the clinic. Here he describes in specific detail how to use palpation to find each of the points on the body, and to determine whether or not they are "active." Then he identifies the particular conditions for which each point is best suited, rather than merely reciting a laundry list of all possible indications.
With insightful stories about his own discovery and use of the points in a practice that has spanned nearly five decades, this master teacher brings each of the points to life for other acupuncturists. The book is organized by body region, which makes it especially convenient for finding appropriate points on particular parts of the body. There are also over 90 drawings which illustrate the locations of the points in relation to anatomical landmarks and other points and channels.
This is a book that belongs in the pocket of every practitioner, where it will become a well-thumbed treasure.

Ear Acupuncture: A Precise Pocket AtlasEar Acupuncture: A Precise Pocket Atlas Based on the Works of Nogier/Bahr
by Beate, Md. Strittmatter
Publisher: Thieme Medical Publishers; Pocket edition

Apparently Hippocrates was onto something when he treated impotence by bloodletting at the ear, as did Bosch when he showed Satan needling the Libido Point of the ear of a sinner. Strittmatter, a practitioner and chief instructor at the German Academy of Acupuncture gives a little history but a lot of practical advice on how to perform ear acupuncture, in which gold, silver, and even permanent needles are inserted in points on the auricle corresponding to other areas in the body.
She describes these points as they correspond to the motor system, internal organs, structures of the head and nervous system, and functions such as the endocrine system. Strittmatter also describes indications and auxiliary lines that relate to treatment for such conditions as anxiety, aggression, and addictions to barbiturates, caffeine, and nicotine. The volume includes over 300 illustrations.
