Editorial Reviews

Review

Being a fourth-generation practitioner of TCM with 40 years of clinical experience, as well as being a Master of Qigong and director of the TCM Research Institute wherein my duties include teaching Chinese medicine to medical professionals worldwide, I deeply believe that this book, Biomedical Acupuncture for Pain Management: An Integrative Approach, is a milestone on the road toward integration of acupuncture into mainstream medicine and that it will open the door of acupuncture therapy to Western healthcare professionals.

This book is an indispensable guide to effectively incorporating acupuncture into any modern medical practice. The INMAS system is understandable and a brilliant distillation of this complex ancient healing art. I strongly endorse this innovative and practical textbook for all physicians who deal with neuromuscular symptoms.

Format: Paperback
Finally there is a biomedical explanation of practical acupuncture system which anyone practicing acupuncture can immediately use. It is easy to read and easy to understand. Explanation of basic neuroanatomy and dynamics of acupoints immediately answers a lot of my practical questions. The best part is their unique easy to follow system which I start to use for pain problems. This book definitely will be the desk reference for many practitioners.

I am a western trained Osteopathic Family Physician with a strong interest in integrating acupuncture into my clinical practice. I have studied numerous Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) texts and find myself lost and confused. My western trained mind has a difficult time grasping Qi, Essence, Channels, the Four Examinations, the Eight-Principle Pattern Identification. . . What I can grasp are the concepts of Biomedical and Neuroanatomic acupuncture as presented in "Biomedical Acupuncture for Pain Management". If you are a western trained health professional and are interested in learning more about acupunture or are interested in a practical book that can help you integrate acupuncture into your clinical practice, then this book is for you. I strongly recommend that you also look at "Acupuncture, An Anatomic Approach" by Houchi Dung. I carry both of these books back and forth to work every day. I use them and refer to them that often.

This book bridges the gap between the old and new acupuncture. What was previously seen as an exotic, traditional and obscure art is now simplified and quantified by these authors in a way that fits it directly into modern scientific thinking, and by extension, into the work of any contemporary health practitioner who has to treat pain. This book is all that a currently-practicing MD, osteopath, chiropractor, or other practitioner needs to incorporate acupuncture into their work, and in doing so to thoroughly transform and improve their ability to relieve most pain symptoms, and by amplifying the body's own natural healing capability, to cure many common causes of chronic and acute pain. I recommend it wholeheartedly, and anticipate that it will have a far-reaching effect.

I don't know too many physicians who pick up a textbook and consider themselves qualified for an entire branch or subspecialty of medicine. Those who seek to add acupuncture to their practices almost universally do it out of frustration with drugs and surgery, and the quest to help their patients in ways that western medicine cannot. I fall into this category, as do several of my colleagues.

I was not issued this book through my training, but I have purchased a copy and have found it to be very valuable as a reference in many ways. I would highly encourage anyone who is undergoing, or considering undergoing, acupuncture education to get a copy of this book and add it to their library, and if you're already in practice it's critical. Since MANY patients who are seeking acupuncture do so for some complaint related to pain, having a larger armamentarium with which to treat them is beneficial to everyone. Get this book.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle version, spent 3 days with Dr. Ma in Boulder and comparing my Kindle version to the printed copy I found the Kindle version was worthless - I bought the printed copy because the information is worth the cost of the book, but not accessable in the Kindle version. I was expecting a PDF or useable version, I got a worthless Kindle version that was difficult to read and not helpful in the class or as a reference. None of the images were clear, the index/search was hopelessly ineffective.

Don't buy techincal or medical Kindle versions until Amazon steps up to the standards of a true epublisher - otherwise your are supporting a Goliath that does not provide the goods. Buy another format that is usable.

Kindle is great for reading flat text books on the fly, but this is the last time I will buy a technical or reference Kindle book. When I buy on medical web sites I get a usable version with readable images, tables and cross references. I was burned once before on a Kindle version, but won't be fooled again - even after a seductive "Free look inside" that siren call to press "One Click Purchase" - think again becuase Kindle does not do technical/medical books with images/tables and indexing. Kindle does plain text well, and know that the e version you get will be disappointing or worthless until you buy the hard copy or pay for real reader format.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have practiced traditional acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for 15 years. I found the concepts and principles set forth by Dr. Ma to be fascinating and intriguing. The writing style of this book is scholarly and coherent. However, there are a lot of editorial choices that made the book challenging from a practical and clinical point of view. The locations of the points are not delineated in explicit detail,for example. Also, there are a lot of references in the earlier chapters to the clinical uses of Dr. Ma's treatment system that can only be understood having read as far as chapters 5-6. This created some confusion for me as an interested reader. Furthermore, there is A LOT of repetition. Certain phrases and concepts are repeated over and over throughout the book, often times verbatim. This I do not mind so much, as I appreciate repetition as a means of reinforcing learning. But, I can appreciate how this quality may put some readers off.

Overall, I think this book presents a new approach to modern acupuncture, or "Dry Needling," as it is being called today, and offers a valuable system for helping people in pain. If this goes to a second edition, some thoughtful, professional editing may hep to springboard this book to the status of "modern classic."
