Sun's Season of Channels

An Introduction to Chinese Philosophy, Chinese Medical Theory, and Chann
Table of

This is a creative, entry-level book on Chinese medicine theory, philosophy, and concepts told in an accessible, story-telling format in the context of a child visiting their grandparents over the summer and having lessons over afternoon tea. It presents the theory of Yin/Yang, the five elements, the Chinese Biorhythm Clock and the placement of the channels with a logical explanation in a narrative style. With a dialectic approach, it not only aids Chinese medicine students in understanding the Classical texts, but also nudges students away from memorising information and towards a deeper understanding of the channels and relevant theories.

Jonathan Shubs is a Canadian acupuncturist who lives and practices in Switzerland. He is the creator of the Unified Acupuncture Theory system and teaches this internationally. He is also a lecturer at Chiway Academy for the Healing Arts in Switzerland where he teaches undergraduate students and CE. He is trainer for professional development courses at the Academie des Arts-Therapeutic in Geneva where he teaches acupuncture and Chinese medicine as well as clinic management and patient-therapist relationships.
