The author John R. Cross compares the traditional and modern approaches of TCM with the chakra energy system of Ayurvedic philosophy and offers clinically sound strategies for using these two methods to treat the causes of disease conditions, not just the symptoms.
He describes the 7 major and 21 minor chakras and explains how each is related to the body's aura, meridians, key points, endocrine glands, autonomic nervous system, and varying symptomatologies. He presents clear, in-depth explanations of techniques using the chakras and meridian systems in the treatment of chronic physical and emotional conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, insomnia, hypertension, depression, and menopausal symptoms.
Also included are case studies and appendices on the use of copper and zinc needles and biomagnets.
