The Path of Pregnancy Book Excerpt:

This book differs from other texts on acupuncture points in that it is not concerned with the basic theories of TCM. Rather, it is a formulary and clinical reference developed from the clinical tradition of Ching Tan An, Tsang Tien Chi, and Tin Yau So. Dr So related the practicality of point use and emphasises the selection of points for the treatment of particular symptoms and conditions. For each point he lists: clinical effects, disease, symptoms and energetic conditions. The book has a superb index to aid access to information.
