Is Acupuncture Right for You? is regarded by many practitioners as the most concise and useful book to introduce prospective patients to the principles, processes, and benefits of acupuncture. One of the oldest healing therapies known, acupuncture has now become a popular and recognized alternative to Western medicine, particularly for the treatment of chronically painful conditions. While Western medicine manages conditions primarily with drugs and/or surgery, acupuncture focuses on treatment of the person as a whole by identifying and relieving energetic imbalances and blockages throughout the body. Addressing these disruptions in the energy flow, or vital force, of the body treats not only the physical symptoms but also the underlying cause of the ailments.

Ruth Lever Kidson explains the fundamental principles of traditional Chinese medicine that underlie acupuncture and how practitioners use this information to make their diagnoses and select treatment options. Using case histories of acupuncture patients, she shows what to expect from a consultation and treatment session and also offers advice on how to find a good practitioner. Anyone considering acupuncture for treatment of a health condition will find their questions answered and their concerns allayed by this invaluable book.
