This lavishly illustrated anatomic atlas of 414 pages by the Italian doctors Quirico and Pedrali provides the reader with concrete answers and reassurance on a wide range of questions pertaining to anatomy in acupuncture practice. The first section offers a concise review of all major acupuncture points, presenting their clinical applications in table format. This is followed by a second section of more than 200 full-color illustrations. Cross-sections depict concrete anatomic structures in the vicinity of each acupuncture point, illustrating skin, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and bones.
