Exactly what I was looking for. This book is absolutely beautiful. It's easy for the beginner to read, understand, and follow.....the PERFECT pictorial atlas of acupuncture points. Not only has a description of each acupoint (see far left of column of picture), but also has 3 different illustrations: graphic, overview of channels, and a photograph showing the acupuncture needle in position. I cannot say enough about this book.

I have been to a number acupuncturists over the years in various communities, some were chiropractors and some were OMDs. The Pictorial Atlas is a must-own book for the serious acu-student or the dedicated client who's performing their own self-acupuncture under the guidance and tutelage of their health professional. The meridians are very well-documented. Each point has a thorough description including location, insertion technique, properties, application and peculiarities along with typically 3 images- the first being a diagram showing where to locate based upon anatomy, the 2nd being where to locate based upon related points, the 3rd being a photo of an actual person being treated with that point. The visuals are superb!

I purchased this to learn self acupuncture. It is clear and consise and easy to understand. The pictures are excellent quality. If you are looking for the theory you should buy a book on that subject but for needle placement and usage this book is what you want!

I bought this book to help me along in my needling class and it is great. The pictures are clear and the information is accurate. For the price I would suggest this book to all students of acupuncture.

Great visual for point location. A great study tool for acupuncture students. Limited compressed needle action description but 3 picture visual make it an amazing buy for the price.

I am an acupuncturist and the only kind thing I can say about this book is the thoroughness of the points included. But the format is next to useless.

Every point has three small pictures, that would be better suited to an iPhone app. One picture is a picture of an inserted needle, the one next to it is different with the meridian and the specific point enumerated. No land marks just overly lit washed out pictures. The needle insertion picture is often (every photo I checked that is) a different pose so you can't even directly compare the two. Next to those is an often skewed computerized image with little relief in the images that render it hard to pick out the details. No muscles, bones, nerves, arteries or veins are labeled.

I bought an atlas I do not think it unreasonable to expect some land marks and details.

When I was in school I bought a cross sectional anatomy book of acupuncture points, it was only sketches and it was not all the points, but it actually had useable information. Maybe as another reviewer noted this would be good for a patient needling themselves, but as a practitioner I would not recommend it to my patients for that purpose and for students it is next to useless.

It was cheap, that is why I made the purchase without seeing the insides. Upon unwrapping it, it took only seconds for my smile of anticipation to flip to a frown. Upon closing the book and rereading the cover I smiled again at the credit for " Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Ots". I guess he is such a Dr. they had to list it twice. I prefer to smile for good reasons.

As an Acupuncture student this book is pretty much useless, especially for Point Location. All you need is Deadman's Manual of Acupuncture, as that is what the Boards use for testing and our school uses for Point Location practicals and exams. Deadman also has location notes which are very helpful devices to locate points, this book doesn't have any. All in all, this book is not very helpful and a waste of money in my opinion.

This is a very clear photographic representation of the acupuncture sites and how to determine them on each person. It requires a text book however to understand the interplay between the points, cause and effect. However, as a teaching tool, this is a good book.
