Publisher’s Description: 

The Eight Extraordinary channels are amongst the most interesting and clinically important aspects of Chinese medicine and Qi Gong. This book introduces the theory behind the channels, explains their clinical applications, and explores their psycho-emotional and spiritual qualities. The author also describes how to cultivate the channels through Nei Dan Inner Meditation.

As a practitioner of Chinese medicine or acupuncture, the key to creating effective individual treatment plans is having a wide understanding of channel theory, and a comprehensive knowledge of the pathways and the points on the channels. David Twicken provides treatment strategies, methods and case studies, offering a variety of approaches so as to give the reader a solid foundation from which to confidently create customized treatment plans for each patient.

Offering a historical perspective as well as modern insights, this book will be essential reading for novice as well as experienced practitioners.

"In the Daoist tradition, cultivation practices centered around the Eight Extraordinary Meridians provide one of the pathways toward enlightenment or immortality. The ancestral founder master of QuanZhenNanZong (the Southern Complete Reality School), Zhang Ziyang, stated that those who are able to open the eight extraordinary meridians will obtain the Dao. I recommend David Twicken's Eight Extraordinary Channels to Chinese medicine and Qigong practitioners interested in working with the physical and spiritual layers through these extraordinary meridians." —Master Zhongxian Wu, lifelong Daoist practitioner and author of 11 books on Chinese wisdom traditions
