A journey where you will find answers, suggestions, adjustments, reflexions. A journey accompanied also by anecdotes, stories, cultural insights, in order to give a more human dimension to this progression. Acupuncture is enlightened by China whose medical thinkers, a long time ago, invented a structure for it.

Nowadays the technique is partially freed from its origins and takes different shapes suitable for each country, each culture, each group. It is illuminated recently by science, the methodology of which allows for the understanding of many of its aspects. Not everything is to be accepted in acupuncture. It is essential to make a selection according to our actual knowledge, to common sense, to the medical environment in which we live. This is what the author is aiming at, attempting to simplify, to organize, to keep or to reject, in order to improve his practice and to inform all those who will read his books. Francois Beyens is a medical doctor and an acupuncturist.

He studied Chinese and acupuncture in Hong Kong and Taiwan during three years, practices and teaches since 1971. He is a founding member and general secretary of the International Council of Medical Acupuncture and Related Techniques which groups the associations of medical acupuncturists throughout the world.
