Shamanism in Chinese Medicine: Applying Ancient Wisdom to Health and Healing (Original PDF)
CT Holman, a medically trained and licensed clinician of over 20 years, clearly explains how Chinese shamanism can be seamlessly woven into modern lifestyle and contemporary medical practices. He explores effective methods to address physical pathologies and emotional imbalances by applying shamanic-influenced techniques including visualizations, verbal healing and shamanic drumming, among others for self-care and medical treatment. The primary resource for the material presented originates from the author’s intensive decade-long study under shamanic teacher, Master Zhongxian Wu.
Several color illustrations and before-and-after patient photos are included that beautifully depict the spirit-based diagnostics and treatments. Incorporating numerous clinical examples and thoroughly researched procedures, this book teaches practitioners how to combine treatments – concentrating on the spirit and soul – with modern medicine to treat the whole person and enrich their practice.
This enlightening book is a must-read for Chinese medicine practitioners, other medical professionals and non-professionals interested in the subject.
