The Jingjin – A 21st Century Reappraisal

David Legge

The jingjin are a network of secondary channels that form part of the channel system of Chinese medicine. Although described in contemporary texts, they have received relatively little attention since their introduction, and are rarely used as tools of diagnosis or treatment in contemporary acupuncture practice. This article surveys the source texts that originally described the jingjin, and explores the clinical utility of these channels from the perspective of modern anatomy and physiology.
