Abdominal and Umbilical Acupuncture

Clinical Experiences.

 

di Gemma D’Angelo – 2019

Gemma D’Angelo introduces the reader to the theory and practise of Abdominal and Umbilical acupuncture describing her clinical experiences. Abdominal acupuncture is very interesting for its effectiveness in particular in treating joint disorders of the spine and limbs but also in treating neurological conditions associated with spinal nerve root compression that cause sciatica and radiculopathy. The author presents the treatment protocols and their different therapeutic effects in two sections; one that lists protocol treatments applicable to more than one condition and a second where the disorders are listed according to their clinical specialisation.

Descrizione

“Gemma D’Angelo has practised abdominal acupuncture for many years. This therapeutic method is very interesting for various reasons. First of all, for its effectiveness in particular in treating joint disorders of the spine and limbs but also in treating neurological conditions associated with spinal nerve root compression that cause sciatica and radiculopathy. Secondly, abdominal acupuncture is “repeatable” and thus its therapeutic efficacy can be tested on the basis of randomized controlled trials. Another great quality is that it is practically pain-free thus it can be useful as a first therapeutic approach even with the most faint-hearted patient. Umbilical acupuncture, the second micro-system described by the author, is based on the complex relation between man and nature. This method is based on the ba gua, the diagram depicting the transformation of yin yang based on the eight trigrams. Similar to abdominal acupuncture, this method of treatment was developed recently and has the virtue of being nearly painless. In this volume, Gemma D’Angelo introduces the reader to the theory and practise of both methods describing her clinical experiences. She presents the treatment protocols and their different therapeutic effects in two sections; one that lists protocol treatments applicable to more than one condition and a second where the disorders are listed according to their clinical specialisation.”
