This book is an introduction to the specifically Daoist contributions to the practice of acupuncture and moxibustion. It begins with an overview of Daoism’s contributions to Chinese medical theory and then goes on to present the biographies of numerous famous Daoist doctors. A large part of this book describes various systems of choosing points based on timing. These include the Eightfold Spiritual Turtle Method, the Eightfold Soaring Method, and the Midnight-Midday Ebb & Flow Method. In addition, there are sections on longevity and first aid moxibustion, Ma Dan-yang’s Twelve Star Points, and secret Daoist points for the treatment of various diseases.
