In the Footsteps of the Yellow Emperor: Tracing the History of Traditional Acupuncture (New)
by Eckman, Peter
Book ID: 9781592650743, 1592650740
Usually available in 3-5 days
Acupuncture now enjoys immense popularity as a major form of alternative healing in the West. Once considered mysterious and exotic, acupuncture dates from before the first century BC and the Huang Di Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor's Internal Classic), one of ancient China's earliest philosophical and medicinal texts. What makes it so popular today? How did the traditions of acupuncture evolve, migrate, and adapt to different societies worldwide?
Originally published in 1996 to great acclaim, this updated paperback edition of In the Footsteps of the Yellow Emperor offers a fascinating and highly readable account of one doctor's personal and professional quest to explore the healing traditions of Asia, its rich historical lineage, and its subsequent transmission to contemporary Europe and North America. It is a must-have book in the healing arts for all practitioners and general-interest readers.
Peter Eckman, MD, PhD (New York University), MAc (College of Traditional Acupuncture, Leamington Spa, England) is editor of The Essential Book of Traditional Chinese Medicine and co-author of Closing the Circle: Lectures on theUnity of Traditional Oriental Medicine. He has a medical practice in San Francisco.

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.
