New Acupuncture Book: “Meridian Circuit Systems“ Soon to be Distributed through Redwing Books


Originally published in December of 2011, “Meridian Circuit Systems,” has been capturing much attention in the U.S. and international acupuncture scenes. The book has now reached much of Europe, Australia, Asia, and the United States. With growing popularity, the book has recently been accepted for distribution through Redwing Book Company.

In the book, unique information is presented on utilizing the networks between the meridians as a basis for diagnosis and treatment. While many acupuncturists are using a zang-fu approach to acupuncture therapy, “Meridian Circuit Systems,” reveals a brilliant method that is based exclusively on the connections that exist between the channels.

While the internal-external relationships that connect the meridians are commonly known, there are four other major systems that form energetic associations between the channels. The first two systems are determined by the Chinese meridian names such as the tai yang, shao yang, yang ming, tai yin, shao yin, and jue yin. The final two systems are determined by the horary cycle. While most acupuncturist are familiar with these systems in one way or another, there is a general lack of understanding in how these three systems may be used together.

For instance, the tai yang meridians may be paired with the shao yin meridians, the tai yin meridians, or the liver and lung meridians. “When the channels are paired in this way, and according to the patients top three health concerns, clinical outcomes can greatly improve,” said James Spears the author of the book.

The major contribution the book makes to the field of acupuncture has to do with what the author calls “circuit theory.” In the book, and online course, the author reveals 15 major circuits that can be formed when the various connections between the meridians are accounted for. These 15 circuits form the basis for doing pattern identification that is based on the relationships between the channels.

For example, one of the circuits the author identifies is the yang ming – jue yin circuit. When this circuit is out of balance symptoms will present in the stomach or colon, and will occur with liver and/or pericardium patterns. Similarly, one can identify disharmony in the yang ming – tai yin circuit, when the patient presents with stomach or colon conditions that occur with a preponderance of spleen and/or lung symptoms.

In addition to the book, an online course has also been developed that has been approved by the NCCAOM for five continuing education credits.
