It provides full background on the physiology, causes, and treatment of sleep disorders, drawing key parallels between concepts of Western and Chinese medicine. Interestingly, it also offers guidelines for analyzing the significance of dreams from the perspective of Chinese medicine, and how dreams can be skillfully integrated into a patient’s therapy.
