The Way of the Five Elements by John Kirkwoo

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

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. 

Intriguing and very interesting!

To be honest it was out of pure curiosity that I have requested this book. Mostly because of the tittle and the summary. I was intrigued.
Maybe a little too complex for someone who was just curious and not really into the element and acupoints but I really have spent a great moment with this book.

You learn about the elements associated with seasons, colors, smells and energy in your body. It's very well written and I have learned a lot.

An interesting read if you want to see your surroundings differently!
