"Our scope of practice has declined over time; acupuncture schools today rarely teach the intricacies of bloodletting. If we lack this powerful modality, we may not have the best tool for the next patient who walks in the door. Dr. McCann's book is a brilliant discussion of the theory and practice of bleeding therapy, providing information that has been unavailable in English up until now. Your practice will not be the same!" -- Lorraine Wilcox, author of Moxibustion: A Modern Clinical Handbook and translator of Volumes 5 and 9 of The Great Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion "The field of Chinese medicine in the Western hemisphere is maturing. Henry McCann's volume on the ancient Chinese methodology of bloodletting is among a rare group of contemporary monographs that demonstrates this development." -- from the foreword by Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc, Founding Professor of the School of Classical Chinese Medicine, National College of Natural Medicine, Portland, Oregon
