Xuanyuan auricular acupuncture and clinical applications
This book introduces the complete Xuanyuan auricular Jingluo system and the 50-meridian differentiation pattern. This pattern enables practitioners to differentiate, and then utilize, 50 meridians in their clinical practice, augmenting the 14-meridian pattern that has been used since the Yuan dynasty. Throughout the book, the author has created the images of the Xuanyuan auricular Jingluo system, illustrating the origin of meridians in the ear, the direction of the energy flow of meridians, and the connection between the ear and macro (body) meridians. Included are images of the big Collateral of the Spleen, the Jiaji Mai, the Chong Mai, and the Collaterals of Du Mai, Ying-qi, and Wei-qi, which have never before been delineated. The clinical applications for various illness and disorders, as well as challenging problems facing modern patients, are explained in Chapters 3 and 4, with step-by-step guidelines to master the clinical approach and treatment. In summary, this book represents an innovative development in Traditional Chinese Medicine and in the Jingluo system as outlined in the classic texts of the Nei Jing and Nan Jing.
