Acupuncture Treatment According to the Six Conformations of The Shanghan Lun
by Stephanie Bekooy & Arnaud Versluys

For close to two thousand years, the Shanghan Lun (Treatise on Cold Damage) has provided the framework for the treatment of acute external diseases, based on the six conformations or channels. It has offered Chinese herbal practitioners a range of powerful yet subtle treatments to follow the complex, and sometimes rapid, changes that such diseases manifest. Although the Shanghan Lun does include some acupuncture treatments, they form a relatively minor part of the text. Such is the flexible nature of acupuncture, however, that appropriate treatments can be formulated for the different stages of development of disease through the six conformations.
