'A must read for both new and seasoned Acupuncturists. Descriptions of the treatment protocols used to assist in the dying process are extremely valuable and can be readily utilized. A well researched reference on the systems of hospice and palliative care, Hospice and Palliative Care Acupuncture is a foundational handbook for treating hospice clients and their families.'
