Asian Medicine

Books about Japanese, Korean and Tibetan medicine

Books about asian medicine

here are meant:

  • Japanese medicine,
  • Tibetan
  • and Korean medicine.

Often the differences between Japanese, Korean or Tibetan medicine and Chinese medicine with regard to the therapies used are not so large-scale.

Differences between Japanese Acupuncture and Chinese Acupuncture

Asian medicine is extremely various. In Japan, for example, thinner needles are used than in China. In Korea, the abdominal wall diagnosis is added to the diagnosis. This building diagnosis (Hara Diagnosis) also exists in Japan – only carried out slightly differently. There is also the pulse diagnosis in Korea, only in contrast to China this is carried out on both arms. As you can see, there are many parallels and yet the therapies are different. The same is true for herbs. Nevertheless, it may be exciting for one or the other therapist to get to know another Asian form of medicine.

Books and Videos on Tibetan Medicine

At the TCM Congress in Rothenburg 2017, Bob Flaws spoke about the use of Tibetan medicine in practice. In our video center you will find a recording of it. The first few minutes you can watch the video of Bob Flaws for free.

We have the corresponding books for this. Dr. Florian Ploberger teaches Tibetan Medicine in Austria. In addition to his book “Wurzeltantra and Tantra der Erklärungen” you will find some articles on Tibetan medicine on our therapists’ blog.

Korean medicine on the rise

Korean medicine (Sasang Medicine) has its own philosophy. Dr. Gary Wagman has for the first time published a book of the basic text in English under the title The essential teacings of Sasang Medicine. Dr. Andreas Brüch has published the first textbook of SaAm acupuncture in German at our publishing house Müller & Steinicke. In his courses on Korean acupuncture, he introduces the four-needle technique and refers to numerous parallels to Chinese medicine. For many participants an absolute enrichment to their knowledge of Chinese acupuncture.

As you can see, Asian medicine is rich in experiences and variations and always worth a look…
