A favorite for first year acupuncture and TCM students because it covers the essential knowledge of the channels and collaterals and the characteristics of the channel system, providing descriptives that include the key points, pathway, associated organs and points, physiology, pathology, clinical applications, and divergent, teninomuscular, and collateral channels.
