Acupuncture Points and Channel Energetics (Based on Chinese Classical, Daoist oral and European traditions) - There is a gap between the known classical texts on Chinese Medicine and the variety of concepts and styles that have been transmitted and are being practiced today. Two major tendencies have dominated Chinese Medicine in the past decades, Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) as opposed to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a term coined during the early years of Communist China. Historically, as Chinese Medicine spread to other neighbouring cultures, it further evolved, and was enriched by these inluences. This explains the variety of methods and concepts, that are not to be found in the Chinese Classics, and that have made their way to the West. Another source and great contribution has been the Daoist oral tradition, with concepts which complement and explain many of the classical writings. - This book is a work of compilation of the classics, with the oral traditions and the European acupuncture, namely the French tradition, supplemented by the author's personal clinical experiences. - The book covers all of the theories pertaining to the energetic structure of the body, the channel systems and the point categories. It is a good overview of the Classical Chinese as well as the French concepts on acupuncture (Parts A and B). - It explores the point functions and indications, which have been compiled from about 20 leading texts, classical as well as modern, with the reference source for each function and indication (Part C). - It describes the Extraordianry vessels and the Secondary Channels, the Sinew, the Connecting and the Divergent channels and their clinical applications and examples, compiling the classical texts, the French-Vietnamese school and the Daoistic oral concepts as supplied by Master J. Yuen (Part C).

"Bridging the Gap" offers a broad and profound understanding of the body energetics bringing together the Eastern classical Chinese principles with Western medical and anatomical concepts, as well as the Daoist oral traditions. The tree dimensional, physical, energetic and psycho-spiritual understanding of the channels and the points of the body, has very broad applications. It is fundamental not only in the practices of acupuncture, tuina massage, taichi and qigong, but also helps to better understand the spiritual disciplines as described in the techniques of Nei Dan (Inner Alchemy). --- Furthermore the superficial pathways of the channels, not only maintain the functions of the muscles and the fascia, but also have deeper physiological, organic and even psychological effects. This relation between the outer structures and the inner physiology could even explain the funcitoning of many Western manual therapies, as well as psychological releasing methods. --- This book provides a solid background of classical Chinese energetic theories, explained by a Western MD trained in Chinese acupuncture and herbs as well as in Western osteopathy, supported by decades of clinical and practical experience.
