5.0 out of 5 stars.  Traditional Japanese Acupuncture, April 16, 2006
By Kevin Anderson (United Kingdom,
This is a great book for those who use Meridian therapy in thier clinic, this can be seen from some of the authors of this book Ikeda Masakazu and Shudo Denmei. The fact it uses the term traditional in the title simply indicates that the sources for this book/Meridian therapy are from the classical texts of Chinese traditional medicine such as Su Wen and Ling Shu. This reflects the common use of the word traditional in the names of many of the Japanese acupuncture societies in Japan. The book fills in many of the gaps that Shodu's book did not, remembering that Meridian therapy was first introduced to those who had no knowlege of TCM, this is not the case today with many acupuncturist's having a grounding in modern TCM.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  Not actually traditional japanese Medicine, March 12, 2005
By Acupuncture Guy
This book is titled TRADITIONAL Japanese Acupuncture. Unfortunatelty it is not really that at all though it may contain elements of some traditional Japanese styles. It seems that the esteemed authors have made an attempt to fuse Chinese TCM with elements of Japanese Meridian Therapy and have come up with something that to many Meridian Therapy practitioners (myself included)seems unrecognizable as TRADITIONAL anything. I do not mean to criticize the authors theories or his approach but to call this traditional Japanese acupncture in any sense seems a bit of an inaccurate statement.

Chinese TCM and Japanese Meridian Therapy are both relatively new (20th century in fact) traditions though they are based on very old Chinese medical texts. This work however represents nothing I nor anyone I have spoken with in the field of Japanese Medicine can call traditional. Indeed it seems an entirely new approach based on two older systems.

There is a movement going on in some circles to create a TJM. However, the Japanese tradtions are so diverse that I think this would be a mistake. Certainly it could be argued that in the creation of TCM in China much was lost. The works of Dr. Tin Yau So or (Miriam Lee's book on) Master Tong's works are examples of affective approaches that are no longer taught in China due to the forced standardization of acupuncture. I hope this book is not an attempt to standardize Japanese acupuncture.

This may be a very good approach, I do not know, I just wish the author hadn't tried to call it traditional.
