Archetypal Acupuncture: Healing with the Five Elements Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Chinese model of the Five Elements (wood, fire, metal, earth, and water) and the Twelve Officials (the organ systems that comprise the map of traditional Chinese medicine) has been applied as a system ofmedicine for three thousand years to balance chi, the vital force of the body. "Archetypal Acupuncture "explains to both acupuncturists and the general public how to work with these maps of energy and usethem to diagnose physical illness, resolve emotional imbalances, and navigate the stages of life.

Dr. Dolowich's goal is to revitalize these traditional teachings for the modernworld--and in the process bring East and West together. Through an archetypal approach to Chinese medicine, he shows how we can gain fresh insights into the roots of illness while uncovering a positive vision ofwellness and the healing process. The book draws on case histories, spiritual poetry (especially Rilke and Rumi), classic sources such as the I Ching, and examples from contemporary culture in order to bring the elementsalive. Individual chapters explore the interface of Eastern and Western medicine, Chinese numerology, spiritual aspects of the elements, archetypal patterns in popular culture, and strategies for cultivating a life inharmony with the rhythms of nature.

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
