This handbook is written for Western learners of Traditional Chinese Medicine who wish to master the unique manipulation methods of Chinese auricular therapy and the current Chinese charts. It is suitable for learners of intermediate level and above, and can be used either as a teacher or as a teach-yourself textbook.

Chinese auricular therapy is the use of the auricle for preventive and therapeutic purposes. Specific acupuncture points on the external ear were used for the relief of various disorders of the body over 4,000 years ago. As a unique "teach yourself" reference book, this handbook deals with Chinese auricular therapy in the practical sense only. It is written in two main parts. Part I introduces the basic theories of Chinese auricular therapy including the characteristics of Chinese auricular therapy, locations, functions and indications of Chinese auricular acu-points, auricular diagnosis, principles of selections of acu-points, techniques of manipulation and auricular analgesia. Part II is devoted to a detailed description of the treatment of common diseases and disorders, which are minutely discussed as to etiology, pathological differentiations, principles and methods of treatment and prescriptions of auricular points, complete with clear illustrations.

Included in this handbook are special techniques that have been greatly developed from simple needling to manipulations of delicate skill. Various new types of auricular stimulations are also introduced, such as filiform needling, embedded needling, electro-needling, hydro-needling, laser needling, bloodletting therapy, magnetotherapy, seed-pressure therapy, auricular moxibustion and massage.

"I am sure that acupuncture practitioners in the western world will find from this book all the technical details often missing in other English-language texts of the same subject." -- Professor Yang Jiasan, Chair of Acupuncture Department, Beijing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
