Brief Description:
Like the internal treatments of traditional Chinese medicine, the external therapies of TCM are equally important and essential parts of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques of TCM. Compared with the therapy of internal medicine, the external therapies are safe and no invasion with lasting effect but no involvement of metabolism and therefore more indicated for the old and young who are reluctant or unable to take oral medications.

The book introduces 43 external therapies of TCM which work to effectively threat diseases by stimulating the body surface through medication, photoelectric magnetic field and instrument, leading to dredging meridians and regulating qi, blood and function of internal organs through skin-penetrating absorption and meridian qi induction.  Each therapy covers the preparation of external application agents or instrument, operation approaches, clinical application and treatment of diseases in subspecialties and attention points. In addition, the sketch maps of operation are also combined here to help better understanding and learning.
