"The authors skillfully weave together the fabric of traditional Mayan medicine, using Chinese medicine as the loom. The result is a rich and complex tapestry of indigenous healing practices and contemporary Mayan culture that will surprise and delight a North American audience."

The result is much richer that a mere comparison between two traditions.
This is a book I return to over time- looking up certain acupuncture points to learn about them from Maya point of view. I pick it up every now and then to be re-inspired by traditional healers who were observing the same human anatomy and physiology that I do today, but from a different perspective. There is always more to learn, and this book is written in service to our continued learning.
