Myth and Meaning in Chinese Medicine

Myth and Meaning in Chinese Medicine
Special Offer
Volume 3 Issue 3 - Late Summer 2008

by Lonny Jarrett

All models of medicine are based on world views which reflect the underlying beliefs and assumptions about life inherent in the culture in which they are formulated. The ways of knowing in ancient China focused on understanding the movements of Dao as they are represented externally in the universe and internally in human beings. The acupuncture meridians and points reflect the way in which the Chinese saw the macrocosm of the universe as it is mapped onto the microcosm of the body. This map guides us to the relative balance of the functional relationships which maintain the integrity of the human body/mind/spirit. The Yijing may be considered a tool which guides our intuition to an understanding of the Dao’s implicit movement in the world. Similarly, a knowledge of the imagery of the acupuncture points gives us access to the ways in which the Dao is striving to express itself through each individual and the ways in which that effort is blocked, resulting in imbalance and ill health.
