About the Author

Shudo Denmei was born in Ohita, Japan in 1932. As a child he contracted pulmonary tuberculosis, but recovered through acupuncture and moxibustion treatments. He subsequently apprenticed to Miura Nagahiko (the acupuncturist who saved his life) and was trained in the Sawada style of acupuncture. He opened his own practice in 1959.

Mr. Shudo began studying and applying the concepts of meridian therapy in his practice in 1968, and is now a senior instructor at the annual summer seminars of the Japan Meridian Therapy Association. He presently serves as an officer of the Kyushu Meridian Therapy Association, as a board member of the Japan Meridian Therapy Association, and chairman of the Ohita Prefecture Acupuncture Association.

Steven Brown was born in Japan where he lived until the age of fourteen. In 1979 he returned from the United States to Tokyo to study Oriental medicine, and in 1983 graduated from the Japan Central Acupuncture College, after which he was licensed as an acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner. Mr. Brown continued his study of acupuncture with such renowned teachers as Manaka Yoshio and Serizawa Katsusuke. He also lectured at the Tokyo Acupuncture and Moxibustion College.

This book is the best of all of the books written already by this great master of "Meridian Therapy", Shudo Denmei.

Like second-rate cookbooks, they may give varying results for the home cook.

My interest in oriental medicine is serious and long-standing, although I have not had the chance to study formally at an established school. Ancient texts are seldom available in translation and can be extremely difficult to understand when they are available. Many of the more modern texts are quite dogmatic. Like second-rate cookbooks, they may give varying results for the home cook. Shudo Denmei's book is a wonderful gateway. It gives a very understandable "big picture" view of acupuncture as it developed from its origins to the present time. It gives extremely practical ways for a student to begin both study and early clinical experience. Without translation from theory to actual practice, no such book is worth anything. This book is the most practical I have seen at making this transition to clinical experience possible. So, this is a wonderful place to begin. On the other hand, the author also outlines very clearly at least one respectable path to mastery of the higher complexities of acupuncture practice. The text can, then, guide a person through long stages of improving practice. There are other wonderful books (consider, as an example, Dr. Manaka's book), but I know of no other text that is nearly as helpful or as practical, particularly for a person like me. I have great desire, but I don't catch on easily. Thanks to the author.

Relevant, pragmatic, an excellent reference for clinical libraries, Introduction to Meridian Therapy is ideal for the beginner and experienced practitioner alike. Well rounded information on meridian therapy that is highly applicable to clinical practice combines with numerous charts and diagrams for easy reference.

I liked this book - especially the hints to learning the pulse diagnosis, and the "embassy" analogy. This is a great intro to Japanese acupuncture. (Not for total beginners in acupuncture)

This book is the best of all of the books written already by this great master of "Meridian Therapy", Shudo Denmei. This book is extraordinary and indispensable to all and any acupunturista, be him linked to the acupuncture Chinese, Japanese or western. This book is of great aid not just in the diagnosis, as well as in the treatment of the disturbances of the meridians. And their teachings will be of great aid, as it is it for me, in the diagnosis and treatment of at least 80% of the treatable diseases with the acupuncture. Nobody in healthy conscience can stop reading, to study, to dialogue, to discuss and to share the rich information of the same with other work friends. Certainly, well practiced these techniques of the book, his/her performance as acupunturist will be said: before and after Shudo Denmei!

I attribute much of what I do in practice to this book. The text is very readable and the information is presented clearly. If I were allowed only one book on acupuncture, this would be the one.
