This work presents the theory and practice of abdominal diagnosis with the greatest care ever applied to an important diagnostic technique.
Beginning with an historical and cultural perspective on the use of palpation in general, and abdominal palpation in particular, the book details the information required to master and extend the techniques presented.
Introductory chapters concern the role of the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of Chinese medicine.
Detailed etymologies, historical context, and classical sources are used to acquire a greater insight into hun, po, zhi, jing, and shen, as well as many other seminal concepts.
