APPLIED CHANNEL THEORY IN CHINESE MEDICINE
By Jason D. Robertson and Ju-Yi Wang
This work, from one of modern China’s most respected scholars, teachers, and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the interrelationship between organ and channel theory can lead to more precise diagnoses and better clinical results. While most textbooks focus either on the functions of the organs in basic physiology or on the uses of the channels in treatment, this book shows the essential relationships between the two. Theory and practice are connected through a detailed discussion of a channel palpation methodology developed by Dr. Wang, which leads to more precise and effective point selection, location, and technique. The presentation is a unique and highly readable format that preserves the intimacy of dialogue between apprentice and teacher, with questions and answers, narratives, and case studies.
