language in a clear, appropriately documented and culturally valid context.
The text is concise, complete and accessible.

Grasping the Wind provides students a unique opportunity to study an application

--- American Journal of Acupuncture

Here is a foundation on which it is safe to build.
--- Sara Hicks, Traditional Acupuncture Journal

It is thought-provoking and crosses into areas that are rarely touched upon by both modern Chinese researchers and the more innovative of our Western acupuncture educators. It tackles many difficult concepts such as the spiritual, mental, and emotional, aspects of Chinese medicine, source theory, and classical energetic anatomy and physiology. It is a book you can dip into at any time and come out with gems of insight that can only reinforce your belief in a paradigm that is just starting to be explored by our culture and our scientific community.
