Explains how to achieve the core value system at the heart of Nourishing Destiny in clinical practice.

"Lonny Jarrett has written another book in his unmistakable style. In The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine, he continues the message that Oriental medicine is not merely a technique, but an art that draws near when its core begins to resonate with the heart and spirit of the approaching student. He invokes respect for the ancient source of the medicine, including the Five Element lineage of his teacher J. R. Worsley, and correlates them to more recent philosophical trends favored by modern TCM, but it is the writing between the lines that carries the main pronouncement of this work: at a certain stage in every practitioner’s development, similar to a calligraphy student who is eventually done imitating the brush strokes of his predecessors, there is the need to soar and arrive at the heart of one’s own medicine.
While providing a tremendous amount of clinical information that is immediately applicable in a practicable realm, The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine primarily transmits this message. In a sense, this work must be read as the autobiography of a master practitioner who shows us his roots, his growth process, and the amalgamation of Chinese medicine with everything he is, thinks, and knows—all in the spirit of inspiring us to do the same".

"Lonny Jarrett's work opens up the spiritual dimension of the Chinese mode of healing. The book presents intriguing and potent methods of acupuncture in a clear and concise way, and provides an easily accessible resource for the dedicated practitioner. Based on in-depth experience and developed in great subtlety, it is a wonderful guide to the deeper mysteries of Chinese medicine, a veritable treasure trove of modern spiritual healing following the traditional Chinese vision".
