Understanding The Jing Jin For Treating Musculoskeletal Conditions
The jingjin are a network of secondary meridians that form part of the meridian system of Chinese acupuncture. The word "jin" is translated as sinew channels, meridian sinews, muscle channel, muscle conduits, and tendino-muscular meridians. This presentation provides an overview of the published material on the jingjin theory. The possible intentions of the earliest authors are explored along with contemporary approaches to how the jingjin theory may be applied when treating musculoskeletal conditions - based on David’s extensive clinical experience.
