This book presents an overview of the theoretical foundations of electroacupuncture, together with experimental and clinical evidence for the efficacy of electroacupuncture in its various forms. It also provides guidance on the effective clinical practice of electroacupuncture, illustrated with informative case histories.

It serves as an excellent introduction on the subject, covering all the key information a beginning practitioner would need to know, as well as exploring avenues for advanced practice.

The accompanying CD-ROM is an ideal research tool, providing searchable chapters from the book as well as an extensive database of more than 8,000 clinical trials that can be accessed via the CD-ROM or through a companion website.

    'Well worth the wait'¦as well as being a practical clinical manual and giving the basics, is also as the title suggests, a valuable research resource for those who want to know more'¦.This book sets the standard and will be a valuable asset for any practitioner who uses or will want to incorporate electroacupuncture into daily practice.'
    Christopher Zaslawski. Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. 2007 Volume 2 Issue 2

    "With so much material presented here Electroacupuncture (EA) is more a resource than simply a textbook. Frankly, if you are at all serious about acupuncture this has to be one of the best bargains ever brought before us."
    Charles Buck, Journal of Chinese Medicine '¢ Number 87 '¢ June 2008
