Description: Dr Young Wei Chieh brings students and practitioners a highly useful and clinically insightful text dealing with the five transport points, the special acupoints found on each of the twelve channels distal to the elbows or knees. Known as the jing-well points, ying-spring points, shu-stream points, jing-river points, and he-sea points, these five types of points all have special characteristics related to the five phases, and thus they are sometimes called the five phases points.

The ancients used analogies of these points to describe the movement and strength of qi and blood, and thus each of the points has a unique function.

The text covers, in 26 chapters, their significance, characteristics, locations, tenets and principles, applications, treatments, point combination methods, restriction-based treatment methods, mother-child point selection, yuan-source points, using transport points as local points, spatial correspondences, temporal correspondences, seasonal and hourly point selection, zi wu liu zhu closed/open points, visceral correspondences, qi affinity point selection, I Ching hexagram point selection, acupoint bleeding, taiji correspondences, connecting channel point selection, combinatory principles and methods, notes from Dr. Young’s personal experience, and a synthesis of point applications.
