I have written an article for a blog of a colleague and friend of mine who specializes in the treatment of vulvodynia. The topic of discussion is the clinical use of the acupuncture point CV1, which has been previously discussed on her blog in terms of ethical and practical application.
I decided to approach it from a historical perspective and broaden the discussion to the subject of the image of the body as it was perceived in traditional Chinese medicine, and on the nature and essence of Chinese medicine and its place in the therapeutic texture of the modern world.
Though not related to Shanghan Lun, it is a discussion that might be of interest to anyone studying and practicing Chinese medicine. It discusses a perspective that raises questions pertaining to our role as the successors of a rich and wise tradition of Chinese medicine.
I would like to invite you to read the article in the link below and it would be most welcome if you join this important discussion through your comments:
