I found this book disappointing, for reasons I will explain below. The first thing I wanted to note, however, is that this book is not designed for the general public. Unless you have a background in Chinese medicine (particularly herbal and acupuncture interventions), this book will be confusing and quite possibly frustrating.

As an acupuncturist, I found this book to be broad in scope but light on details. It certainly is not the "bible of excellence" as one reviewer noted, although I do not doubt that the author is well-versed in her field. As with many expert practitioners, it is often difficult for them to translate their knowledge in a way that less expert individuals can make sense of it. The author assumes that the reader has a great deal of knowledge in the areas of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, as well as a basic understanding of cosmetology. That is a big assumption. Nowadays, one would also need to be knowledgeable about quality assurance management in order to assess adulteration concerns for any herbal products coming from China. At our clinic, we only use Chinese herbal products made by US companies that have gone through our quality control audit, which is quite time consuming. While herbal products from China may be superior, I do not have the expertise or time to evaluate them.

Pragmatically, I question some of the statments the author makes. For example, I do not think one should broadly suggest doing gua sha or cupping on the face, as the author suggests, unless the practitioner is well trained in those modalities. My concerns about bruising increases when gua sha and cupping are done together with facial acupuncture, as outlined in some protocols.

This is the most authoritative and comprehensive text on the market for TCM facial rejuvenation. If a practitioner is serious about practicing in this field, this is the book to own. It is laid out clearly, and rich in ideas and different modalities to choose from. I have searched for a text like this for years, and now I have found it! I consider it to be my bible of excellence in this field. I have also purchased Ping Zhang's DVD on facial rejuvenation and I am equally impressed. Her expertise in this area makes both her book and DVD decisively the most invaluable tools to own in your practice.

I was really excited about this book since there is so little out there on acupuncture for facial rejuvenation. There is definitely some helpful information in here but there was one thing that really turned me off to this book. There is an entire chapter devoted to advertising the author's own skincare line and no, it's not explaining how to recreate her formulas. She also recommends her own line during the treatment protocols, sometimes not even giving an alternative. I find this very tacky and unprofessional. I was going to order her DVD CEU's but decided on another class out of fear that it would be an even more expensive push to buy her products.

Now for the positive. There are some good treatment protocols in the book and helpful food suggestions. I can't comment of their efficacy, but I look forward to giving them a shot. I don't think this book is the one book with all of the answers but it is a great supplement. This is obviously geared towards the professional practitioner.

Format: Paperback
This had the potential to be such a good book. however, it is fundamentally flawed in one area i found. That was the herbal formula areas. The writer uses the book as a vehicle for promoting her products. All herbal formulas are listed as her brand etc. These of course do not list the ingredients (except maybe the chief herbs mentioned in previous chapters). She does mention the major formulas such as liu wei.., bu zhong.. etc .. but like we didn't know those ones already! What I was hoping for was for more guided text on herbal formulas specifically for facial rejuvination.

Oh well .. the search and experimentation continues..

Mind you .. having said all that - acupuncture, massage, dermal roller advice is all quite adequate.

You have to read the whole book in order to appreciate it. I find it very informative and interesting. Lots of very valuable information, including herbs and dietary advises. Some people don't like needles in the face; book offers lots of different alternatives like gua sha, jade roller, moxa and the skincare line of products.

But...it was difficult to reference the point locations, this is a good book for a practitioner, but for a student, I had to use it along-side a chart...

This book is useful with specific protocols for certain conditions. But it lacks breadth and does not cover a whole lot. 4 stars because info on facial acu is hard to find.
