The groundbreaking work exploring how ancient Chinese medicine can be an integral part of our lives today - now in a 20th anniversary edition.

Wood Becomes Water uses the five elements of Chinese cosmology -- wood, fire, earth, metal, and water -- to introduce readers to the connection between the physical, emotional, and spiritual forces in their lives. Practical, accessible, and wise, the book shows how the centuries-old techniques and philosophies of Chinese medicine can be applied to everyday issues of health and well-being in the modern world.

Praise For…

"Gail Reichstein’s creative insight and engaging style makes a very old theory very new. By applying the Chinese Five Element Theory to health of body and health of home she reveals a level of wisdom relevant to people of any culture. I recommend WOOD BECOMES WATER to those who wish to deepen their understanding of Chinese medicine and themselves." —Kenneth S. Cohen, author of THE WAY OF QIGONG
