Guidelines on lifestyle and use of the eight Extraordinary Vessels are provided, with case studies allowing easy application of theory to practice throughout.

Giovanni Maciocia is one of the most highly-regarded and respected authors and lecturers in the West. He is Visiting Associate Professor at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has many years of experience in teaching and practice. Giovanni trained initially in the UK and then in China, learned Chinese to be able to study from original Chinese texts, and was one of the first practitioners and authors to introduce Chinese medicine in a clear and accessible way to a Western student audience.

"This book provides an interesting counterpoint for obstetricians and gynaecologists practicing western medicine, as the explanations, treatments and management are so different...Dr Maciocia is able to compare the up-to-date Western scientific treatment and pathophysiology of the conditions with the TCM perspective...it is hard to imagine a more diverse, comprehensive or better text-book for those practicing TCM who are spcialising in woman's health, or for obstetricians and gynaecologists with an interest in TCM."
