An English Language First… This Comprehensive Guide for students and practitioners is the ultimate path to understanding and using Abdominal Acupuncture. Mastering the Art of Abdominal Acupuncture is the first-of-its-kind to teach the powerful art of Abdominal Acupuncture (AA). One of the most revered and successful acupuncture systems in China, AA is relatively rarely or not as commonly used in the Western World.
