Charles Buck draws on decades of Chinese medicine study, practice and teaching in this book to provide a relevant and engaging account of the origins of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. From pre-Han dynasty medical practice to Chinese medicine as we understand it today, Buck covers all the key ideas and conceptual developments, focussing on those that have the most practical relevance to clinicians. The knowledge that he presents derives from a variety of rare sources, including original Chinese texts that he has translated. With Buck's clear explanations and unique style, the book provides an accessible and authoritative resource that will help practitioners and students deepen their understanding of the practice. A practical and modern appreciation of the wisdom of the great Chinese physicians, this book will be of immeasurable value to students and practitioners of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and anyone interested in Chinese medical history.
