For the cost of 5 articles (students) or 10 articles (practitioners) you can buy a year's access to the entire Journal of Chinese Medicine article archive.
This article presents a translation of two passages on acupuncture excerpted from Yīxué Yuánliúlùn (医学源流论, On the Origins and Development of Medicine, 1764) by the Qing dynasty physician Xú Dàchūn (1693-1771). As a leading exponent of Hànxué (‘Han learning’), a movement which sought to return medicine to the lofty purity of former times, Xú’s 18th century writings on acupuncture will be of particular note to practitioners with an interest in classical approaches.
