FOUNDATION OF CHINESE MEDICINE (2ND EDITION)
By Giovanni Maciocia
This text covers the basic theory of traditional Chinese medicine for beginning students. Concentrating on acupuncture, and emphasizing relationships in its discussions of pathogenesis and therapy, Foundations uses many illustrations, diagrams, and case histories to reinforce the text. It describes the functions, etiologies and patterns associated with each of the channels and organs. Also included are descriptions of hand diagnosis, eye reflex areas, and information regarding the often overlooked specifics of habit and lifestyle. The section on channels and points is imaginative and original. Instead of the usual location and actions listings, the author directs attention to the experiential information needed to select and apply points effectively. Each point is discussed in three categories: nature, action, and commentary. The first category is the point associations, the second its related functions or treatment principles.
