Written for acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners, this book describes the medical conditions that can prevent, complicate or result from diving and other water sports, and provides effective clinical treatments. The most common problems experienced by divers - ear, nose and throat (ENT) disorders - can be effectively treated with acupuncture. Through in-depth knowledge of Western diving medicine, diving techniques and Chinese medicine, the author prescribes acupuncture diagnostics and treatment for these ENT disorders.
Complete with anatomical diagrams and acupuncture point charts, this is a practical resource for acupuncture clinicians who deal with the issues associated with diving. Advice for patients is given at the end of each chapter, and is available as a handout in downloadable form.
