About the Author
PROFESSOR LI DING: Born in Henan Province, China, in 1935. He graduated from Shanxi Medical College in 1960. He is the member of the Board of Directors of All-China Society of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, vice-director and vice-secretary general of Shanxi Society of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, executive member of the Board of Directors of Taiyuan Society of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and President of Qigong Society of Shanxi Medical College (TCM), chief physician of the Ist Teaching Hospital of TCM. In 1985, he was honored to win National Wu Yi (MAY Day) Labour Medal, and the credential of National Good Scientific and technical Scholar, and the College Model Teacher. With traditional Chinese Medicine as the main approach, he combines traditional Chinese medicine with Western medicine in disease treatment and prevention. Over the last twenty-seven years, he has published more than ten books concerning acupuncture and moxibustion, and traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese pharmacology, such as Jianmei Jingluo Tu, A Collection of TCM Clinical Experience, etc. Among the books, The Dictionary of Acupuncture and Moxibustion and Meridian Points, which has been called "epoch-making illustrative dictionary for the points of acupuncture and moxibustion and meridians" and "the first creation in history," is chiefly edited by Dr. Li Ding and published by Dongyang Academic Publishing House, Tokyo, Japan.
According to many years' teaching and clinical experience, Dr. Li Ding has combined the meridian theory with Qigong's characteristic of regulating respiration and transmitting the Qi (vital energy in human body) to create Meridian Qigong in July 1985. Meridian Qigong has been called "the latest Qigong for transmitting Qi along the meridians." In April 1986, he ran an international shortterm training class of Meridian Qigong and ten doctors coming from U.K., West Germany, U.S.A., Norway, India, Singapore and Belgium attended the class. This Qigong is also welcomed at home. On the basis of Taiji Qigong; eighteen types, he has had his own Taiji Qigong twenty-eight types, and his Taiji Qigong was also welcomed when he taught in Italy and Singapore
From the year of 1984 on, Dr. Li Ding has been invited to give lectures in Japan, Italy, Singapore, America, West Germany and Canada. At present he is working, teaching and doing scientific research in the college and hospital.
He is also working on some new books in which he will show people his new and uncommon ideas on medical science and they will soon come out.

Summary: The meridian theory is an important component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is the study of the physiological function and pathological change on the meridians, and their related zangfu organs. The essential functions of the meridian system are to "transport qi and blood," "to maintain conductivity" and "to resist invasion of exogenous pathogenic factors." The meridian system distributes to all parts of the body. the endless circulation of qi and blood in the meridians is responsible for the maintenance of life and the variety of functions which support it. Over the last two thousand years, the meridian theory has been the guiding principle for the clinical practice in the realms of TCM, particularly in those of acupuncture, massage, and qigong. By combining the meridian theory with the theory of the zangfu organs and the etiology of TCM, one can thoroughly explain both the physiological activities and pathological change which take place in the body. In this manner, a theoretical basis for the principle of treatment in accordance with the differentiation of symptoms and signs was established. Physicians throughout Chinese history have all paid great attention to the study of meridians, which has now become an independent branch of learning in acupuncture and moxibustion.
