This attractively rendered chart gives students and practitioners vital information on the five elements or five phases in Chinese medicine. It illustrates the elemental points, mu points, shu, xi-cleft, and horary points, and the sheng and ko cycles. The perimeter of the chart is given over to large tables depicting essential elements of pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, and five phase correspondences. Tongue and pulse geography are also depicted. Additionally there are smaller tables that summarize the eight influential points, the layers of qi, shu point diagnosis, and eight extra channel points.
