Many people ask for what they can read as an introduction to chinese medicine or the philosophies that are inherent to the medicine. These are texts that I find are very helpful to read as an introduction.
The Expressiveness of the Body, Shigehisa Kuriyama
The Web That Has No Weaver, Ted Kaptchuk
Fire Child, Water Child, Stephen Cowan
All Sickness Is Home Sickness, Diane Connelly
Tao Te Ching
