This book presents an examination of the eight extraordinary meridians from the texts of the Neijing, the Nanjing, and their commentaries.
The first section provides an overview of meridians as revealing the basic interaction of yin and yang within the body, providing the foundation for the movement of qi and the underlying framework for the main meridian system.
In-depth descriptions of the du mai, ren mai, chong mai and dai mai build up a simple structural picture of the body that is further elaborated in the presentations of the qiao and the wei mai. Each name is discussed, looking at the etymology and nuance of meaning.
Classical descriptions of points and pathways are explored in depth.
Transcribed and edited by Sandra Hill.
