This publication is a response to countless requests for a separate collection of the drawings that appear in the book Advanced Acupuncture, A Clinic Manual. In that book Ann Cecil-Sterman suggests unique protocols for the Complement Channels: the Sinew, Luo, Divergent and Eight Extra Channels derived from her many years of study with the great Dr Jeffrey Yuen. Advanced Acupuncture is the first and only book of protocols for these channels. The book’s illustrations–derived from her intense and long instruction by Dr Yuen–map the entire channel system. Here in this volume, the drawings appear in an easy reference form, complete with all points and branches. An abbreviated point location reminder section is included. Concepts and principles being understood, there are times when a quick reference secures confidence and precision in the clinic. These drawings present some information about the channels that had not been shown before Advanced Acupuncture was published. The Sinew Channels, for example, are shown with their actual width, that is, covering the entire surface of the body and overlapping with one another. Luo, Divergent and Eight Extra Channels are all shown with all their points, branches and trajectories for the first time ever in print. The third branch of the Kidney Primary Channel also appears for the first time in print.
