This article attempts to fill an obvious gap in the study of Chinese medicine education by presenting a systematic analysis of the role of the five, six and seven emotions in the history and foundational knowledge of clinical medicine. The author analyses the symbolism of relevant pictograms to reveal layers of complex information associated with the topic of the emotions. As an example for the clinical application of emotional therapy in contemporary China, the extensive five element healing system utilised by the Confucian healer Wang Fengyi (1864‑1937) and his still practising students is presented for the first time in a Western language.
