Qin Bowei’s 56 Methods: A Clinical Perspective

Jason Blalack

Qin Bowei was one of the most important scholar-physicians and synthesisers of Chinese medicine of the 20th century. This article presents a brief introduction to his system of prescribing, which constitutes a synthesis of the most important clinical ideas in the history of Chinese medicine that pre-dates most of Mao Zedong’s influence on medicine, and differs in a number of ways from the current TCM model. Practical clinical examples of how to use Qin’s treatment methods are also provided to demonstrate how they may be helpful to us today.
