An invaluable guide for anyone beginning a career in acupuncture, this book offers a unique and supportive insight into the challenges and the pitfalls that the novice acupuncturist is likely to encounter, and provides encouragement and down-to-earth ideas for tackling them. The book addresses styles of working, common mistakes, confidence with patients, becoming a better praticitioner, and how to think about success and failure in the treatment room.

Written in an easy-to-read conversational style with useful case studies throughout, this book will help newly-qualified acupuncturists to reflect on what kind of practitioner they want to be. It addresses styles of working, common mistakes, confidence with patients, becoming a better practitioner, and how to think about success and failure in the treatment room. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the practitioner ends the day refreshed and enlivened by the work and has confidence in the treatments given.

This is a thoughtful, practical and inspirational guide addressing many of the common issues that arise in the first years of practice. Using questions to help focus the reader and meaningful anecdotes to illustrate the journey to be travelled, John develops a blue print for holistic development. It is a delight to read and will aid the path to artistry and mastery in one's professional role. How I wish it had been available to me in my early days of practice.

Acupuncture for New Practitioners is an acupuncture book like no other. It addresses intangible qualities that cannot be measured by test scores. Rather than tell us what to think or what to do, this wonderfully honest book by a wise and experienced practitioner instructs us on how to think and, perhaps more importantly, how to be. Every chapter contains pearls of wisdom, gently yet firmly guiding us toward finding our own truth, both as practitioners and as human beings. The author reminds us to be present in every moment and dares us to continue to learn and grow. He provides a pathway for fostering compassion, competence, and confidence, and for transforming knowledge and skill into wisdom. This book will prove invaluable not only for new practitioners but also for those of us with decades of experience.
