Cheng Xin-nong; H. 544 pp.
Beginning with a synopsis of the history of auriculotherapy and its comparison with body acupuncture, this book continues with the most complete and thorough collection of auriculotherapy ear charts available. The descriptions of auricular anatomy present the ear topographically in both horizontal and vertical dimensions. They point out the ear landmarks, including those aspects hidden by overlaying anatomy. These descriptions include the relation of one landmark to another as well as to the parts of the body. The maps are made more useful by the development of a fully illustrated presentation and an inclusive nomenclature for ear point locations.
