Acupressure, Acupuncture without Needles by J. V. Cerney is a practical and useful book for anyone wanting the benefits of Acupuncture but who does not having a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine nearby (or who can not afford to go to an acupuncturist on a regular basis.)
On this book's blurb it says the author offers a 'new home treatment... that may bring easy, safe and lasting relief from pain' and that can help many ailments. So if you are looking for a non-pharmaceutical method for relieving and reducing pain, this book by Cerney should be of use.
This should be of special use to anyone who suffers pain from thesmall spinal fractures that make for kyphosis (back hump).

The book does not address bone loss directly BUT it does show you how to find acupuncture points and how to stimulate them with your finger (the correct movement).
The book also includes many diagrams of the body with the acupuncture points marked and labeled. (A really useful feature.)
The author shows you how to use finger pressure on various acupuncture points to heal yourself and to relieve pain.
Many of the readers of this site about Osteopenia and Osteoporosis may be interested in this non-pharmeceutical treatment method.
C. Norman Shealy, MD. has that certain acupuncture points, which he call The Ring of Fire, increase Calcitonin, a chemical that slows the removal of old bone and enhances or produces recalcification of osteopenic bone. (It should be noted that Calcitonin can also reduce bone pain).
If you have read Acupuncture and the Ring of Earth you know the points associated with this way of reversing bone loss. This book by J. V. Ceney will shows you how to stimulate those points correctly.
The book may be of particular interest to anyone with arthritis who wishes to avoid pain medications prescribed for this condition (often a cause of bone loss). It should also be of interest to anyone with kyphosis (dowagers hump) since this condition can be a cause of chronic pain.
