"This must-have book is clearly written, well organized, and represents a golden opportunity to add Yammamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) to one's acupuncture armamentarium. Whether your preferred learning mode is well-crafted prose, illustrations, algorithms, or step-by-step "live" demonstrations on the enclosed DVD, this small volume offers it all. ...Rewarding and succintly presented...20+ pages [in the second segment of the book] offer a rich summary of many complex ideas... I found this book to be an excellent reference work, extremely well organized, and I greatly enjoyed the small touches such as the appendices and the Chinese proverbs that bracket each chapter. Feely's readily apparent mastery of the principles of TCM, Five Elements, and French Energetics, and his facility for explaining them, helped to ground scalp acupuncture in an innovative, logical approach consistent with the major fields of Oriental Medicine. I heartily recommend adding this slim volume to your acupuncture library and adding the techniques to your daily practice."--Medical Acupuncture

"An interesting introduction to a new technique that certainly deserves further study."--The Lantern
