The Li Lineage of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Description
  • E-Book
  • Author(s) Information

This book contains 3 parts. The first part is the Chapter of the Li Lineage, which briefly reviews the more than 1400 years old history of the Li family and also introduces the Li lineage of TCM.


The second part and third part follows the example of Nanjing, containing 81 topics in total. The second part is the Chapter of TCM Fundamentals, which includes 50 topics. The third part is the Chapter of Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion, which includes 31 topics. All the contents of the second and third parts are from my TCM lectures to international students. Some topics originally came from Professor Li Ding’s articles and books, but these are revised and supplemented greatly based on my teaching and clinical experience.


This book mainly discusses the difficulties in the TCM fundamentals and clinical acupuncture, for the well-known basic theories, readers can take Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion and other of Professor Li Ding’s books such as Acupuncture: A Comprehensive Text as references.
