Welcome to Adventures in Chinese Medicine! This book takes you through the essential ideas and describes the amazing techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine - all explained in friendly, understandable language illustrated with charts, photographs, cartoons, and diagrams.

Adventures in Chinese Medicine unlocks the secrets of common treatments and the history behind them; such as Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxabustion and Herbal Medicine. Unique concepts such as tongue and pulse diagnosis are deciphered and clarified. Ideas that are fundamental to Chinese Medicine - Yin and Yang, Qi, meridians, the five elements - are all discussed in uncomplicated terms, you can comprehend. Adventures in Chinese Medicine also provides stories from other acupuncturists and patients and even gives you helpful information about what to expect on your first appointment. This unique book is designed for individuals who want to learn more about the practices and philosophy of Chinese Medicine, for practitioners who want to educate their patients, for those thinking about training as an acupuncturist, and for patients who already love their treatments and want to understand more about how they work. Join millions of people who have learned to create balanced, healthy lives! Adventures in Chinese Medicine is written by Jennifer Dubowsky, Dipl.Ac., M.S.O.M., L.A.c., an experienced practitioner who has trained in the U.S. and in China. Jenny's enthusiasm for Chinese Medicine will captivate you as she guides you through the labyrinth of new ideas with her friendly writing and easy to understand explanations. "Jennifer Dubowsky's book explains traditional Chinese medicine practices and history in an engaging way. If you want to gain a thorough overview and an introduction to acupuncture and herbs, and understand how they work, this is the book for you! Easy to understand and well-written. Plus, who doesn't love a female superhero!" Christina Shaver "As a patron and proponent of Acupuncture, I was interested in reading Jennifer Dubowsky's new book, Adventures in Chinese Medicine. Many of the current books on this subject are comprehensive guides that offer an encyclopedic, and often clinical, look at traditional Chinese medicine. While these have a place, Dubowsky offers a more personal, practical and readable look at thousands of years of Chinese medicine with a brief explanation of the history and timeline of advances and changes as well as terminology, techniques and usable applications for both patients and practitioners."
