Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine (9780939616626)
Publisher: Eastland Press
Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the interrelationship between organ and channel theory can lead to more precise diagnoses and better clinical results. The book is a collaboration between Wang Ju Yi, one of modern China's most respected scholars, teachers, and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, and his American apprentice and practitioner, Jason Robertson.
While most textbooks focus either on the functions of the organs in basic physiology or on the uses of the channels in treatment, this book shows the essential relationships between the two. Theory and practice are connected through a detailed discussion of a channel palpation methodology developed by Dr Wang, which leads to more precise and effective point selection, location, and technique.
Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine was developed during Mr Robertson's apprenticeship with Dr Wang in Beijing, and is presented in a unique and highly readable format that preserves the intimacy of dialogue between apprentice and teacher, with questions and answers, narratives and case studies.

Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine
This is one of the most valuable texts I have read in the subject of acupuncture for many years. It brings a wealth of clinical and intelligent thought to the art and science of acupuncture. It is beautifully written and bound and offers the discerning practitioner a wealth of clinical knowledge to guide their practice.
