by Giovanni Maciocia

This book illuminates and examines the art of traditional Chinese acupuncture with this in-depth look at the secondary channels and other key structures encompassing the human body in Chinese anatomy. This book describes in detail the pathways, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of the Luo, Muscle, and Divergent secondary channels, as well as other key structures such as the Cou Li and Huang membranes, and gives a thorough, clear overview of subjects poorly understood and incompletely covered in other English language texts. Over one third of the book is dedicated to the Eight Extraordinary Channels, providing the reader with the most in-depth information available in the English language. Drawing on his broad clinical experience, the author covers the energetic physiology, pathology and points by body area, providing ease of access for both the student and practitioner of acupuncture. The Channels of Acupuncture presents comprehensive and clear information on an essential part of traditional Chinese medicine.

  • Covers key channels not thoroughly discussed in other texts, giving all students and practitioners detailed and clear material to guide them in their practice of acupuncture.
  • Offers new information and insight on other key body structures in Chinese medicine including extraordinary vessels as well as the Cou Li and Huang membranes.
  • Clear illustrations depict the exact channel pathways, diminishing any confusion about their location.
  • Case histories and research from Giovanni Maciocia present a wide range of experiences and examples of clinical practice and study.

An Extraordinary Book!

After reading it back and forth, trying to understand and furthermore , to practice all that this book has to offer, I came to realize that Chinese medicine as an art is achievable only once you contain and fully master the human landscape -the web of vessels that construct our body/being. And that goal is brought to us, very well written and organized within this book.

Finally a great explanation of meridian style acupuncture

There are many fine herbalists, but the number of solid acupucnturists remain few. This book is the first step for any acupuncturist that wants to learn to approach their entire treatment from a Chinese point of view, specifically, meridian/channel theory. This is probably Giovanni's finest book. Interspersed throughout the book are quotes from some of the Chinese Medical Classics, such as the Nei Jing. These reinforce Giovanni's ideas. If you've never heard of the Gao or the Huang, you should start with this book. If you are tired of using the same points or you're protocol medicine isn't working, you should buy this book. I went to a college where most students ran to protocols and Estim rather than relying on solid theory and needle technique. This book should be a standard textbook in meridian classes. Giovanni even includes sections on Ghost points and Celestial points as well as lengthy sections on the extraordinary vessels and the divergents. His discussions on luo channels and musculo-tendino and particularly good. Don't hesitate, buy it now!

Buy this book!

As a teacher of Secondary Vessels theory, I have been waiting for this book for several years. It is clearly presented in such a way that even beginning students can comprehend, and more advanced students and practitioners can implement immediately. Most of this information was available in other forms if one had the wherewithal to chase it all down, but as usual Mr. Maciocia pulls it all together in a seamless whole. I recommend it to students and practitioners at all levels of experience.
