The Foundations of Chinese Medicine A Comprehensive Text for Acupuncturists and Herbalists

By Giovanni Maciocia, Su Xinming

The aim of the present book is to give a detailed account of the theory of Chinese medicine and acupuncture based on rigorous reference to ancient and modern Chinese books, as well as to explain its application in a Western practice. The theory covered is common to both acupuncture and Chinese herbalism. In addition, it discusses the use of the acupuncture points in detail and the principles of treatment. Maciocia has had many years of experience in practising and teaching Chinese medicine. He believes that despite its origin some hundreds of years before Christ, that it can be used to successfully diagnose and treat 20th century health problems, generated by a life-style very different from that of the ancient peasant society, from which Chinese medicine originated. He considers that the simplicity of Chinese medicine makes it truly universal, so that it can be applied to any society at any time.
