Description
Once considered mysterious and exotic, acupuncture now enjoys immense popularity as a major form of alternative healing in the West. As San Francisco doctor and acupuncturist Peter Eckman relates here, the practice dates from before the 1st century BC and the Huang Di Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor's Internal Classic), one of ancient China's earliest philosophical and medicinal texts. Eckman considers what makes acupuncture so popular today, and how the tradition has evolved, migrated, and adapted to different societies.

"Eckman traces acupuncture through Chinese antiquity with a very readable clarity absent in other scholarly accounts of the same material. This story blossoms in the 20th-century convergence of acupuncture traditions in Europe, and stands as the only articulate comprehensive account of this migration."American Academy of Medical Acupuncture Review
