Uses the five element system of Chinese cosmology--wood, fire, earth, metal, and water--to analyze physical and emotional distress, and recommends therapies to restore health.

Review quote

"Gail Reichstein's creative insight and engaging style makes a very old theory very new. By applying the Chinese Five Element Theory to health of body and health of home she reveals a level of wisdom relevant to people of any culture. I recommend WOOD BECOMES WATER to those who wish to deepen their understanding of Chinese medicine and themselves." --Kenneth S. Cohen, author of THE WAY OF QIGONGshow more
