The Way of the Five Elements

52 weeks of powerful acupoints for physical, emotional, and spiritual health

John Kirkwood
Journeying through the seasons of the Five Elements, this book covers 52 acupoints, their functions in the everyday world and their physical, emotional and spiritual associations. It includes images that express the spirit of the season, and clear descriptions and photographs of the point locations.
 

Description

Framed within the context of the modern, everyday world, this book takes a refreshing, anecdotal stroll through the healing principles of Chinese medicine, looking at key acupoints for each week of the year.

The author journeys through the seasons of the Five Elements and within them the physical, emotional and spiritual associations of key acupoints, exploring their names, functions, and intensely practical healing use in the real world. The acupoints range from the point that can help with your sense of smell, through to the Fire points that can help with a good sense of humour. With clear descriptions and images that express the spirit of the season, and photographs of the point locations, this book is perfect for anyone interested in a different view of the body and its healing relation to the seasons, as well as students and practitioners of Chinese medicine looking for deep and memorable insight into their work.

Reviews

'Through poetry, lush visual imagery, fascinating case histories and crystal clear explanations and point locations, John Kirkwood brings the body, soul and spirit of Five Element Acupuncture to life. A labor of love and devotion, this is a book clinicians, students and patients of traditional Chinese medicine have long been waiting for. I will use it in all my teaching and will cherish my copy for years to come.'
- Lorie Eve Dechar, author of ‘Five Spirits: Alchemical Acupuncture for Psychological and Spiritual Healing’

'John Kirkwood's The Way of the Five Elements is an original and immensely practical addition to the growing literature of five element medicine. In addition to his lively descriptions of each element, John Kirkwood offers something new: explorations of individual acupoints that highlight their elemental qualities. In choosing a small handful of powerful points for each element, Kirkwood offers readers a highly accessible way into the very complex system of acupuncture points. Novice readers and journeyman practitioners alike will find insights and ideas for acupressure treatment of themselves and their clients.'
- Gail Reichstein Rex, acupuncturist and author of Wood Becomes Water: Chinese Medicine in Everyday Life and Earth Acupuncture: Healing the Living Landscape
