Historically the influence of Chinese medical traditions thought to be revealed from divine sources extended East to Korea and Japan and as far South as Indochina the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian Archipelago. As the distinct medical traditions of these regions encountered the ancient medicine of mainland China they absorbed and transformed them based on their own indigenous healing practices and herbal and plant resources. Providing a panoramic overview of the medical traditions of China the Malay Peninsula the Indonesian Archipelago the Philippines Indochina (Vietnam Laos and Cambodia) Korea and Japan Dr. Marc Micozzi offers compelling new insights into the influence of the essentially Chinese expression of vital energy (qi) in these traditions as well as the pull of other cultural traditions such as those of India and Islam.
