Ripples in the Flow

Reflections on Vessel Dynamics in the Nàn Jing
Regular price $59.99
Regular price Sale price $59.99
In Z'ev Rosenberg's second book, the scholar-physician shares his insights from his study of discrimination of movement in the vessels in the Nàn Jing. This book provides an accessible window into the world of classic vessel discrimination, and a deep explanation of the Nàn Jing as well as advising how it can inform modern clinical practice.

The first chapters of the Nàn Jing examine the parameters of depth, length, qualities, five phase relationships, viscera/bowel, channel/network vessel and season. Ripples in the Flow is designed as a compendium text that provides a commentary on these essential vessel discrimination chapters, as a teaching text, and as a clinical manual for practitioners of both acupuncture and herbal medicine. It will be especially useful for practitioners of five phase approaches to Chinese and Asian medical systems, as it will provide clear classical references for the knowledge that they have been taught in their formal training.

Press Reviews

  • Kerri Westhauser, DACM, L.Ac., Director Chinese Herbal Medicine, Maryland University of Integrative Health

    A masterfully written companion commentary of the essential pulse chapters in the Nàn Jing. It reminds us to reshape and further develop our understanding of vessel dynamics and architecture as they relate to time, space and breath motion.
  • Noah Rubinstein, Clinic Director, The Yinova Center

    The value of time - taken to understand the landscape of a patient's health - is irreplaceable and nowhere is this truer than in pulse diagnosis. With deep insight and vast clinical experience, Z'ev Rosenberg reflects on the qualitative nature of one of our most important diagnostic tools. He reveals the depth of this foundation text as well as its relevance in contemporary practice. With the increasing integration of Chinese medicine into the mainstream, the tradition of such commentary has never been more important.
  • Jason D. Robertson, Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine

    Z'ev Rosenberg has distilled decades of clinical and textual ruminations into a concise and very readable guide. Taking up the tradition of classical commentary, the reader is given a seat at the table while an experienced clinician engages the pulse sections of the Nàn Jing while also taking note of commentary over the centuries. For someone like myself who always has more to learn about pulse diagnosis, it is a pleasure to see questions that have come up for me answered from the perspective of the modern clinic. Concepts which seem opaque in the original text come to life when applied in case studies and pulse descriptions. This is a fine example of classical concepts translated for today's practitioner.
