Principles of Chinese Medicine

Revised Edition

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, qigong, tui na massage and diet therapy have been used by the Chinese for over 2000 years, and they are still the treatments of choice for millions of people throughout the East. Now, despite the availability of Western medicine, Westerners are becoming aware of the many benefits of these potent therapies and the popularity of Chinese medicine is spreading rapidly.
Covering everything from the basic theory of Chinese medicine to diagnosis to how to find a practitioner, the book provides a definitive introductory guide to this ancient system of medicine. It includes explanations of each of the five therapies and their unique benefits as well as patients' first-hand experiences. With advice on choosing the right treatment, and comprehensive sections on useful addresses and further reading, the book provides everything readers need to know about Chinese medicine at an introductory level.
