A compendium of his experience in the field and extensive research on the subject, Andrew McPherson’s debut book presents a better understanding of “Pre 1949 Acupuncture” (published by Xlibris AU).

In the book, the author discusses proper, true, traditional Chinese acupuncture, including its modern history, covering World War II until circa 1949. Further, it explores the inherent issues that came along the advancement and utilizes such as a ground for creating easier and clearer diagnosis and better and faster treatment effects.

“[‘Pre 1949 Acupuncture’] is the first book of its kind in English,” McPherson states. “[It is about the] considerable changes in outlook [regarding] acupuncture over a short period of time and the problems that have come with it.”

At its core, the book offers an examination of “where we went wrong” in order to gain a better understanding of acupuncture.
