llustrated Chinese Moxibustion - Techniques and Methods is 'very Chinese' - personal shorthand for a mix of positive attributes
blended with the cultural idiosyncrasies and artefacts of the translation process that we have come to know and love... This is neat and, as with many of the numerous other interesting clinical tips to be found here, is obviously born out of practical experience... All in all, this book succeeds in delivering a comprehensive and enlightening Chinese-style presentation on the practice of moxibustion. This book succeeds in delivering a comprehensive and enlightening Chinese-style presentation on the practice of moxibustion... Overall, as a student text or for one wishing to develop high-level clinical moxa skills I warmly recommend this book.– The European Journal of Oriental Medicine (EJOM), Charlie Buck, author, Educator, Chair of the British Acupuncture Council
In my opinion, Illustrated Chinese Moxibustion is an excellent reference book for anyone practising moxibustion, and an ideal read for all those interested in this type of treatment. It is based on sound ancient TCM principles, but written by modern practitioner. – Journal of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists
