Illuminating the considerations at play in determining courses of treatment in acupuncture, this honest depiction of nine accounts of unique cases shows how changes can happen, how the practitioner makes choices in the moment and why the patient's collaboration and commitment are vital. Hamwee shows how being attentive to all aspects of patients' lives uncovers the conditions for healing, and how it affects the responses of both patients and practitioners in pursuit of health and wellbeing. It does not simply treat acupuncture as concepts and techniques, but rather as a remarkable journey of the body, mind and spirit. An honest depiction of nine accounts of real-life cases such as back pain, chronic fatigue, depression and irritable bowel syndrome, the book describes the experience of acupuncture through the eyes of both practitioners and patients.

This is the first book to set out a full range of research strategies for evaluating the clinical practice of acupuncture. Leading acupuncturists and researchers with international reputations share their expertise. They illustrate their descriptions with practical examples of what has worked and what has not. It outlines many of the key challenges in the field. These challenges relate to the nature of acupuncture and the gap between current research evidence and the actual experiences of acupuncturists in the field. By focusing the chapters on key research questions, rather than methods, the book has a user-friendly feel. Each chapter is easily accessible with brief explanations of research designs as well as vignettes of relevant past research. The book is based on a deep understanding of acupuncture, with its inherent complexity in practice, whether based on traditional principles or more modern concepts. By incorporating a more sophisticated understanding of the field, this book details a range of strategies aiming to develop the evidence base with the utmost rigour. It is the first book on acupuncture research to take this unique view, integrating the very best of evidence-based medicine with a genuine sensitivity to the discipline of acupuncture, from its traditional and holistic roots to its more modern interpretations.
