The Development of Wind Aetiology in Chinese Medicine. Part Two - Clinical Application

The Development of Wind Aetiology in Chinese Medicine. Part Two - Clinical Application
Special Offer
Volume 1 Issue 3 - June 2006

by Attilio D'Alberto

Historically, the demon wind resided in caves, tunnels, or valleys created by Pan Gu as he emerged from the egg (ancient China’s version of the big bang theory) (Zhang and Rose 1995). These caves, tunnels and valleys are also used in acupuncture literature to designate points in the skin through which qi is able to penetrate the body (as well as flow out) and at which it is appropriate to apply needles in order to influence the inner qi (Unschuld 1985). Certain acupuncture points are more appropriate than others when influencing wind type patterns, for example, in the Shang Han Lun it states "When in greater yang disease, [the patient] has initially taken Cinnamon Twig Decoction (Gui Zhi Tang), but is vexed and [the exterior] is unresolved, first needle Wind Pool (Feng Chi - GB 20) and Wind Mansion (Feng Fu - DU 16)”. Again in the Essential Questions, the Yellow Emperor says "I have heard that wind is the beginning of the hundred diseases; what is the method of treating it by acupuncture”? His adviser Qi Bo replies "Wind enters from the exterior giving rise to shivering, sweating, headache, heaviness of the body and aversion to cold. Treat it by needling Feng Fu DU-16” (cited in Deadman and Al-Khafaji 1998).
