Neijing Classical Acupuncture

“The Neijing is one of the most important classics of Taoism. First, it gives a holistic picture of human life. It does not separate external changes—geographic, climatic, and seasonal, for instance—from internal changes such as emotions and our responses to them. It tells how our way of life and our environment affect our health. Without going into detail, the book articulates a treasure of ancient knowledge concerning the natural way to health, implying that all phenomena of the world stimulate, tonify, subdue, or depress one’s natural life force.” The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine (the Neijing Suwen) was published ~240 B.C. and translated by Maoshing Ni, Shambala Publications (ISBN 1-57062-080-6 © 1995) and further edited by Paul Farago. The Neijing is the foundation of Chinese Medicine. Through my Neijing studies, I am continuously training my eyes to see the body in relationship to it’s environment and restore the body back to balance.
