ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

The Chinese model of the Five Elements (wood, fire, metal, earth, and water) and the Twelve Officials (the organ systems that comprise the map of traditional Chinese medicine) has been applied as a system of medicine for three thousand years to balance chi, the vital force of the body. Archetypal Acupuncture explains to both acupuncturists and the general public how to work with these maps of energy and use them to diagnose physical illness, resolve emotional imbalances, and navigate the stages of life.

Dr. Dolowich’s goal is to revitalize these traditional teachings for the modern world—and in the process bring East and West together. Through an archetypal approach to Chinese medicine, he shows how we can gain fresh insights into the roots of illness while uncovering a positive vision of wellness and the healing process. The book draws on case histories, spiritual poetry (especially Rilke and Rumi), classic sources such as the I Ching, and examples from contemporary culture in order to bring the elements alive. Individual chapters explore the interface of Eastern and Western medicine, Chinese numerology, spiritual aspects of the elements, archetypal patterns in popular culture, and strategies for cultivating a life in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
