Segmental Anatomy

Not rated yet

Formidably illustrated and written, the correlations between spinal nerves and segments in skin, musclar system and bones as well as the projection areas of internal organs on the body surface area are deduced from the anatomy of the nervous system. These correlations between spinal nerves and the periphery of the body explain how acupuncture, neural, and manual therapies take effect . Great accessibility through:
