‘Sometimes called coining, spooning or scraping, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface that intentionally creates ‘transitory therapeutic petechiae’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.’ Gua sha has been used for centuries in Asia, in Asian immigrant communities and by acupuncturists and practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine worldwide. With the expansion of traditional East Asian medicine, Gua sha has been used over broad geographic areas and by millions of people. It is valuable in the treatment of pain and for functional problems with impaired movement, the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many acute or chronic disorders.

The title purports to introduce Gua Sha to the general public as an effective yet safe therapeutic protocol with a short learning curve, making it an extremely appropriate form of home-based treatment. The treatment is deliberated at three different levels of proficiency — plane, line and point, that correspond to myofascial, meridian and acupoint treatment, the last which effectively transforms Gua Sha into a non-invasive, needleless form of acupuncture.Conceptualized with a utilitarian resolve, this title spared little effort in covering the historic aspect of the subject matter unless it is essential foundation knowledge. Organized in three parts, the first section of the book helps build a theoretical framework for the reader by introducing TCM theories relevant to the subject. Building on this foundation, the next segment on Treatment Protocols presents the practice aspects of the subject that lay further groundwork for the chapter on Applications. In the final part on Applications, the nature of common disorders is deliberated from both contemporary medicine and TCM perspectives before touching on the treatment protocol, execution caveat and other considerations.

Based on Five Elements theory, this practical, fully illustrated guide to performing facial enhancement acupuncture (also known as cosmetic acupuncture, facial revitalisation or facial rejuvenation acupuncture) shows in detail the acupuncture points, techniques and equipment used in this procedure. Facial enhancement acupuncture targets points and muscles of the face in order to improve the elasticity of the skin and general overall appearance, as well as addressing constitutional points on the legs, arms and body to balance and harmonise the inner elements. The author clearly explains the rationale behind the needling of each face and neck point, which are shown in colour illustrations. He also discusses the advantages of acupuncture over surgical intervention in dealing with wrinkles and sagging jaw lines, and a chapter is included on discussing treatment with prospective patients, follow up and after care. As well as significantly improving the cosmetic appearance, facial acupuncture also has a strong whole body effect on the health and wellbeing of the person treated, and has a long and distinguished history in Chinese medicine. The book is the perfect introduction for acupuncturists and acupuncture students who want to learn how to incorporate this alternative to surgical procedures into their practice.
