Unique in its approach, the new book by Yvonne Farrell provides a framework for understanding how effective the channel system is at supporting survival through allowing the body to hide or store trauma, stress and burnout in acts of self-preservation. She looks at how these latencies are created by the different channel systems, why they are created and the cost of these to the individual in terms of chronic imbalance or disease. Patients can become stuck in survival mode and the book explores how to use acupuncture to bypass the human biological reluctance for change and reach the body on a cellular level. The book sheds light on the deeply rooted pathologies of somatization, bad habits and lifestyle choices, and contains a number of case studies designed to illustrate the book's theories and help the practitioner in the diagnosis and treatment of their patient.

Acupuncture for Surviving Adversity is about moving patients beyond survival and to a state of balance and wellbeing using acupuncture, giving practitioners the tools that will allow trauma survivors and other patients to reset themselves.
