Goes beyond the 12 regular channels
Even since the foundation of the People's Republic of China, and the establishment of its system of TCM colleges, most modern acupuncture textbooks have concentrated solely on the 12 regular channels. This book completes all the other texts and fills this gap.
Although much has been written about the 12 regular channels and their place in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, little has been written since the days of the Yellow emperor's Inner Classic about the secondary systems of channels and collaterals. Such omissions have left a great void in the knowledge, application, and research of the subject of channels and collaterals.
