Every patient has a story. The story can take us to new perspectives and deeper truths beyond the presenting symptoms. John Hamwee is an inspiring writer. He intrigues, and often surprises us by revealing how to understand the real causes of our patients' conditions and in turn master our intuition in the treatment room.
Kathy Doncaster, patient of John Hamwee
I found these stories intriguing. They were helpful to me as a patient because they illustrated how acupuncture works. Not so much by an explanation of mechanisms, but through revealing how possibilities for health and transformation can emerge from attentive and committed collaboration between practitioner and patient.

Unique and thought-provoking. If you're a practitioner of any acupuncture style (or indeed of any therapy of either body or mind) I defy you to read this book and not grow therapeutically from doing so. John's patient-stories (beautifully told and brimming with authenticity) offer us something truly special.

Alongside the skill and craft of acupuncture treatment, John Hamwee has honed his intuition and instinct to develop his art of following the detective clues of acupuncture diagnosis.
