A short introduction on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine is followed by a detailed account of diagnosis. The main part focuses on the description of the Chinese systems of channels, functional organs and the most important acupuncture points. The remainder of the book is devoted to treatment, based on western modes of diagnosis.
