"If you’re an acupuncturist—you NEED to have this book available for your patients. I cannot count the number of times through the years that patients have asked for a simple guide to acupuncture and Chinese medicine so they could understand the treatment process better. Twelve years later—the answer is here! This book covers all the basics and gives patients everything they need to be even bigger participants in their own healing processes. It’s a gem and I’m so glad we finally have it!"—Caitlin Donovan

"This book is super informative and taught me a lot about acupuncture with an easy-to-digest narrative that makes me understand Chinese medicine in a way that I never have before. Sarah has a great voice and is clearly super knowledgeable!"—Julia Dzafic

"The terminology and theory surrounding acupuncture can often be confusing and this book does a great job of explaining how acupuncture works, what to expect from appointments, and what conditions can be treated. It is a very quick read, yet perfect to have as a reference if you have questions later on. As someone who practices veterinary acupuncture, I am always looking for resources for my clients so that they can better understand what I am treating in their pets."—Katie Smith
