2. For anybody interested in the subject, a book I've read twice now and very strongly recommend is The Expressiveness of the Body: The Divergence of Greek and Chinese Medicine It is very well written. As a nurse I loved the long discourse on what different practitioners are actually feeling/finding when they "take the pulse." And it goes further to explore how their divergence really reflects two different ways of considering what it means to be a human being.
I actually picked up a copy of the book second-hand a year ago but haven't gotten around to it yet - I will now, though; thanks for the recommendation!
