Japanese Classical Acupuncture: Introduction to Meridian TherapyJapanese Classical Acupuncture: Introduction to Meridian Therapy
by Shudo Denmei
Publisher: Eastland Press

Meridian therapy is a school of Japanese acupuncture which is distinguished by its emphasis on the classics, its utilization of the five-phase points in treating the root of disease, and the importance which it attaches to palpatory skills in diagnosis and point location.
Japanese Classical Acupuncture: Introduction to Meridian Therapy is noted for the clarity and simplicity of its style, and is the most highly regarded introduction to this subject in Japan. The theoretical and historical basis, diagnostic framework and treatment strategies of meridian therapy are discussed in detail.
The author provides a step­by­step introduction to pulse and abdominal diagnosis, and explains how to incorporate the concepts and techniques of meridian therapy into other styles of acupuncture. The text is interwoven with case histories and anecdotes from the author's lengthy practice.
Extensively edited in collaboration with the author to fit the needs of Western acupuncturists, this book opens the door to Japanese classical acupuncture for Western practitioners.


Japanese Acupuncture: A Clinical GuideJapanese Acupuncture: A Clinical Guide
by Stephen Birch, Junko Ida

A practical introduction to the tools, skills, and techniques of acupuncture, with an emphasis on those particular to Japan.
We have produced a book to represents a new level of development and maturity in the field of acupuncture in the West. Most books in English reiterate the same basic materials over and over again, with a heavy emphasis on theory. It is only recently that the field (in the English language) has matured sufficiently to develop the teaching tools for the next stage of development: technical refinements and clinical detail. This book is a compilation of extremely useful common and not so common methods used in Japan. We thoroughly searched the modern literature from Japan and its specialized techniques to compile detailed descriptions of techniques used by well-known practitioners in Japan and refined the presentation through our own experience learning with Japanese teachers. We feel the photography in the text makes the methods come alive, ensuring accessibility and precision. The introductory sections give an overview of the history, nature and development of acupuncture in Japan, and how the materials in the book dovetail with techniques and methods described in other texts on Japanese acupuncture (notably the work of Manaka and meridian therapy).
