An axis of efficacy (part 2)


By Charles Chace & Dan Bensky

In the previous issue, authors Charles Chace and Dan Bensky began a discussion of the first section of Chapter 1 of the Ling Shu. In the second part of this article, they continue the translation of this section, which they call the Ling Shu Précis. They also further explore the subtle concept of ji  in this text, which suggests that the mechanics of needling, while important, are secondary to the manner and intention with which they are engaged by the practitioner.
