More than a system of medicine in the Western sense of the term, the Chinese approach to health care reflects the Taoist belief in the importance of promoting balance and harmony in body, mind, and spirit. In traditional Chinese medicine, this goal is achieved through nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, massage, exercise, meditation, and other holistic methods that restore the natural patterns of the human system. This book is an accessible and highly readable introduction to all the major aspects of this vast tradition.

Topics covered include:The foundation of traditional medicine in Chinese historyThe theory of chi (energy) and how it influences healthThe Chinese approach to health, happiness, and longevityThe use of Chinese herbal medicine and herbal formulasDiet and nutrition as a form of preventive medicineAcupuncture, acupressure, and massage—including sample techniques for self-massageThe practice of chee-gung, or moving meditation, as a means of promoting good healthMeditation and internal alchemySuggestions for further reading and other resources
