The Effects of Yin, Yang and Qi in the Skin on Pain
AbstractThe most effective and safe treatment site for pain is in the skin. This chapter discusses the reasons to treat pain in the skin.

These receptors have endogenous agonists (yang) and antagonists (yin) that help the body control pain. Acupuncture works through modulation of these receptor activities (qi) in the skin; as do moxibustion and liniments. The treatment of pain in the skin has the potential to save many lives and improve pain therapy in most patients. View Full-Text
