Show Summary Details


This chapter describes in detail the location, energetic functions, and special features of each point in the eight extra channels (known as Qi Jing Ba Mai): Du, Ren, Chong, Dai, Yin Wei, Yang Wei, Yin Qiao, and Yang Qiao. It emphasizes that the unique features of each point come from their associations with specific organs and their connections with other energy channels. The clinical indications for mental and physical dysfunctions due to channel blockages and organic energetic imbalance are only some examples of the clinical use of these points. After reading this chapter, the practitioner should be able to expand his or her usage based on the features and functions of these points.
