Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

See the connection between Western and Eastern medicine, and take charge of your health

The Web That Has No Weaver is the classic, comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of Chinese medicine. This accessible and invaluable resource has earned its place as the foremost authority in synthesizing Wester and Eastern healing practices.

This revised edition is the product of years of further reflection on ancient Chinese sources and active involvement in cutting-edge scientific research.

Book News Annotation:

This volume introduces readers to Eastern medicine and synthesizes some aspects of these ancient traditions with modern Western medicine. Kaptchuk, O.M.D., associate director of the Center for Alternative Medicine Research and Education at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center, discusses the ideas of Qi, Essence, Spirit, and Fluids, as well as the basics of acupuncture and herbology. The bulk of the book focuses on the notion of harmony, the body's patterns, and signs of disharmony.
