Giulia Boschi wrote this book aiming to provide an open-minded approach to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its classical cultural framework.
Blossoming Roots examines Chinese language, philosophical concepts and historical developments in medicine, offering a passionate overview supported by original Chinese sources. Starting from basic TCM theory, the author then covers concepts often neglected in technical books.
This book is a manual to help readers find their way through the vast landscape of classical Chinese medicine and encourage them to further explore this area. The “blossoming” of these concepts – as readers will discover – refers to how these classical medical ideas are touching today’s culture and guiding experiments into the physical nature of qi, the matter-energy information at the basis of our universe.
