About the Author

Matthew D. Bauer, a Licensed Acupuncturist, herbalist, and qi-gong healer, studied Taoist philosophy with a 74th generation Taoist master. In investigating the roots of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, he also explores profound questions regarding issues of spirituality and the evolution of the human condition. Bauer has been in private practice for 19 years and writes a regular column for Acupuncture Today. He received an honorary Ph.D. in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Yuin University. Bauer maintains a practice at La Verne Acupuncture in La Verne California.

"I wrote this book out of frustration that millions of people who could be helped by this simple, cost-effective healing system were not taking advantage of it because they knew so little about and it seems so bizarre. Acupuncture is a safe, simple, method of healing that can ease pain and suffering and literally save lives." Bauer states, "I am convinced that the more we learn about the roots of acupuncture and acupressure, the better we will understand how to help ease pain and suffering today and in the future."

Format: Paperback
The author begins with a clear and unbiased explanation of the underlying differences between Western and Eastern Medicine. Within this context, he explains how and why acupuncture works using non-technical terms that any layman can understand.

The book includes clear examples of types of illness that are best treated within the Western biomedical model and those that are more effectively treated using Chinese Medicine (rather than opinion, his information rests on the NIH Consensus study of Acupuncture Effectiveness)

Part Three of the book gives many helpful Self Care instructions and explains the points that one can safely use acupressure on oneself and others to treat a variety of conditions.

An excellent resource for anybody interested in Acupuncture or the Oriental Healing Arts.

Format: Paperback
Matt Bauer's `Healing Power of Acupressure and Acupuncture', is wonderfully well written book. It traces the roots of Chinese medicine in a simplistic and natural way from ancient China through to the modern Western mechanical world. The core theories of Chinese medicine are excellently explained in a rich simplistic detail that opens up these powerful universal concepts to all that are willing to read and understand them. These powerful insights come from a very experienced healer and have been passed down through millennium by oral tradition and now become available, at long last, in printed form.

Honest advice is given about the differences between Western biomedical medicine and Chinese medicine, allowing the reader the power of knowledge to make up their own minds about what's right for them. It also goes on to explain what's involved in a typical Chinese medicine treatment and how you can go about finding the right practitioner for you.

A real must read for all, from beginners through to Chinese medicine practitioners. It will have anyone that's every wondered about Chinese medicine entranced.

Format: Paperback
This easy to understand, unbiased explanation of acupuncture, acupressure, and Chinese medical philosophy helps fill one of the missing links in our understanding of health and disease. It not only offers the reader a fascinating view of Chinese medicine, but provides self-help acupressure techniques from a practitioner who obviously knows his stuff. I enjoyed reading it and think every one interested in this field of medicine and self care can greatly benefit from reading it as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In summary, I certainly have a better understanding then I did before reading the book, but not nearly as much as I had hoped for. I was not expecting to be able to treat myself, but I wanted to be able to have a much more informed discussion with my TCM treatment team and to explain better to my western doctor (who was very supportive of giving TCM a try). This book gave me some appreciation for what my TCM folks were doing, but not the knowledge to communicate I was hoping for.

I started acupuncture and picked this book up in an attempt to build up a better understanding. It did help me get a little better sense of the "theory", but much of the book seemed to talk around the subject.

For example, at the beginning of the book there is a lot of space spent discussing the difference between western science and the eastern view. Most of the verbiage was really focused on complaining about western science . I was a little concerned that many of the criticisms were very simplistic views of the western approach. Basically, the way western was explained was set up to make it look really bad. That was not helpful to me since I know what I like and dislike about western medicine.

Similarly, most of the discussion of TCM kept stressing how every case is different so there is not one answer. Thus, it really comes down to a skilled practitioner. Plus, it cannot be tested since it is so different person by person. But you should trust it as it has been around a long time.
