Neijing Classical Acupuncture
“The Neijing” is one of the most important classics of Taoism; the holistic philosophy advocating a simplistic life of naturalness and noninterference with the course of natural events to attain a happy existence. It does not separate external changes—geographic, climatic, and seasonal, for instance—from internal changes such as emotions and our responses to them.
It tells how our way of life and our environment affect our health. Without going into detail, the book articulates a treasure of ancient knowledge concerning the natural way to health, implying that all phenomena of the world stimulate, tonify, subdue, or depress one’s natural life force. ”The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine” (the Neijing Suwen) was published ~240 B.C. and translated by Maoshing Ni, Shambala Publications (ISBN 1-57062-080-6 © 1995) and further edited by Paul Farago. The Neijing is the foundation of Chinese Medicine. Through my Neijing studies, I am continuously training my eyes to see the body in relationship to its environment and restore the body back to balance.
