Fully Updated Expert Guide to Scalp Acupuncture Techniques

Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York/Stuttgart —Thieme’s second edition of “Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture” features additional points, upgraded graphics, even more case reports and a chapter on energy and healing. Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA), an acupuncture microsystem, is most frequently used for neuromusculoskeletal diseases, dysfunctions, and acute or chronic pain.

“Some of the protocols have been refined and have become more specific with some new points,” said author Richard A. Feely, whose work is derived from the pioneering techniques of Dr. Toshikatsu Yamamoto. “This edition goes into greater detail regarding the electromagnetic field and physiology of the human body and its potential.”

Each chapter in this concise guide covers a different aspect of Dr. Yamamoto’s theories and methods, encompassing information on Basic points, Ypsilon points and new points developed by Dr. Feely himself. By detailing key topics such as indications, diagnosis and possible side effects, this book helps readers identify the most effective treatment options for their individual patients.

Practitioners will appreciate the color-coded laminated chart that showcases every YNSA point and functions as a handy office tool. Numerous illustrations and algorithms, as well as an accompanying DVD featuring live demonstrations, round out the book.

Since its initial publication, “Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture” has had a positive impact on the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) by spreading the world about YSNA amongst more and more English-speaking practitioners who are now using Dr. Yamamoto’s methods as a therapeutic treatment for millions of suffering patients.

“Now that [Dr. Feely] has studied the subject of YNSA thoroughly,” said Toshikatsu Yamamoto, MD, PhD, “He has formulated it well into TCM thoughts and teachings in ways that I had never even thought of when developing my method and working with it for many years.”
