For almost three decades, Paradigm Publications has provided information about traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture and other complementary and alternative healing systems to English-speaking readers.
Our work is based on the premise that the way to learn how traditional medicine can be best employed is to honor both the East Asian respect for language, tradition, and nature, and the West's commitment to science. Our publications are founded on the criteria of university scholarship, the power of shared technical knowledge and the safeguards of peer review.
We invite you to join us in an exploration of east/west medicine and holistic healing. For more about our company, contacting us, or ordering books, click here .
