A Clinical Handbook of Neuroscience Acupuncture, Second Edition

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
Neuropuncture is the clinical manual of a groundbreaking acupuncture system that incorporates neuroscience into its clinical applications for pain management, orthopaedic conditions and internal medicine. It shows acupuncturists how to apply research into the neurophysiological mechanisms of acupuncture and electrical acupuncture to the traditional TCM model of healthcare. The book explains how acupuncture works using Western medical science and illustrates how to apply this knowledge to clinical cases with electrical acupuncture, creating evidence-based acupuncture protocols. These protocols are clinically proven and result in reproducible clinical outcomes.
Dr. Corradino's development of the Neuropuncture system is cutting-edge acupuncture. As our profession advances and continues to become more mainstream, this content is invaluable to both new and seasoned acupuncturists. Dr. Corradino does a great job explaining the evidence-based neurophysiological mechanisms of acupuncture and presents highly effective treatment protocols. Neuropuncture is a deep dive into the world of modern biomedical acupuncture. I am extremely grateful for this much needed contribution to our profession. Andy Rosenfarb, ND, LAc. Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Board Certified in Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine
As pharmaceutical companies are starting to spend big on "electroceutical" research, Dr. Corradino reminds us that much of this work has already been done. Building upon years of experience would be a wise move in that quest, and this book offers an all-important brick in the understanding of bioelectric medicine. Dr. Corradino provides real and clear teachings based in his own research and clinical practice to benefit both the Eastern and Western physician. Stay ahead of the game - read this book. Dr. Laura Kelly, author of The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook
Michael D. Corradino is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and Founder/CEO of Neuropuncture LLC. With over 20 years of clinical research experience, Michael’s work focusses on the integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medical science.
