Chinese Medicine for Upper Body Pain

Chinese medicine is a popular option without the risk of adverse side effects that may come with opioid use.

This book provides concise explanations in terms of anatomy, pathology, and etiology for both Western and Chinese medicine, and also provides selfcare instructions that are effective and easy to follow.
