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.
Applied Channel Theory in Chinese Medicine was developed during Mr. Robertson’s apprenticeship with Dr. Wang in Beijing, and is presented in a unique and highly readable format that preserves the intimacy of dialogue between apprentice and teacher, with questions and answers, narratives, and case studies.
Winner of best TCM book of 2008 by the German Scientific Society of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
"The value of this book functions as a follow-up to every TCM book we
have ever seen. It takes up where Giovanni leaves off and explores what CAM
only hints at. It takes Pirog and runs with it. This is one of the few TCM books
that I wanted to read from front cover to back. And when I finished it, I started
again from the front and re-read it. It's that good. It's that necessary."
