The authors' attempted for the first time in English, a compilation of the major historical literature on the eight extraordinary vessels. The first chapter introduces the basic theoretical model of the extraordinary vessels with some modern extrapolations. The second chapter contains the most comprehensive compilation of all the major historical discussions of the pathways of the extraordinary vessels that can be found in English. The third chapter contains a compilation of the most comprehensive Asian discussions of the indications and treatment targets for the extraordinary vessels from the historical literature in English. The fourth chapter introduces two rather unique modern uses of the extraordinary vessels developed in Japan. The final sections attempt to show parallels between the historical literature and the modern uses, specially TCM. Recently, other texts on the extraordinary vessels have been published, but none have attempted to report in depth from on the historical literature that this text features.Review:

"It is a delight to see that there is a return to the original concepts of acupuncture and the movement of energy on a global level, as distinct from the use of points purely for the removal of specific perverse influences." -- British Journal of Acupuncture
