This title presents a method of effective pain control for use by those in the healing professions-acupuncturists, surgeons, general practitioners, osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and trained nurses-as an adjunct to their normal course of therapy. It includes a formulary for pain treatment and chapters on acupuncture as anesthesia as well as its use in the treatment of addiction.

Leon Chaitow is a practicing osteopath, naturopath, and acupuncturist who has served as director of postgraduate studies at the British Naturopathic and Osteopathic College and as consulting editor to the Journal of Alternative Medicine. He is the author of several books on health and alternative medicine for both lay and professional readers including The Acupuncture Treatment of Pain, Amino Acids in Therapy, and Candida Albicans. He also lectures internationally.

"Tears away much of the mystique of acupuncture to present a simple approach to pain relief."

– The American Journal of Acupuncture
