Product description

Dao of Chinese Medicine is the first Western text to shed light on the reality of the ancient healing arts of China, revealing that Chinese medical theories are based on important physiological findings. This is in contrast to the Western interpretation, popularized since the 1940s and 50s, that Chinese medicine and acupuncture involve undefined energy and blood circulating through imaginary meridians.
