The Manual of Acupuncture DVD ran into difficulties when first Apple, then Microsoft, upgraded their operating systems. In order to avoid this problem in the future we have moved the Manual multimedia resource to an online app. This means that it will be accessible on most devices (desktop, laptop, tablet etc.) that have a browser.
The online app is more comprehensive than the mobile app (above) and additionally features:
• The entire text of A Manual of Acupuncture, including the crucial and lengthy point commentaries, animations of the primary channel, and a whole variety of self-testing modules.
Access to this online application will be by purchasing either a single payment lifetime licence, or by monthly rental. Full details of purchase options and everything else about the application can be found here. Owners of a previously published Manual of Acupuncture DVDRom or download can upgrade to the web application for a small fee.
