The Healing Power of Acupressure and Acupuncture adopts a unique and essential three-tiered approach. The book covers the development of acupressure and acupuncture under the Eastern methods of science, describes simple acupressure methods suitable for self-treatment, and explains the increased capabilities of acupuncture and how it can used alone or with Western therapies for physical and mental healing. The benefit of this approach is that it provides readers with fundamental information as well as introducing them to a nonthreatening form of treatment they can try for themselves.
