I thought that the many practitioners of Internal Martial Arts here on Shen Wu might be interested in Tom Bisio's book A Tooth From the Tigers Mouth which will be coming out in October published by Simon and Schuster. I have an advance copy and it is an excellent guide to the treatment of sports injuries through the use of Chinese Medicine. It covers everything from examination and diagnoses of injuries and the preparation and application of herbal formulas to recuperation and strengthening exercises and healing dietary advice (and much more!). Tom runs a very successful TCM clinic here in NYC which specializes in the treatment of sports injuries. I have known him for over twenty five years and in that time I have seen him treat many injuries in his Hsing Yi and Ba Gua classes using the techniques and formulas he has now written about. I have also used the same information to treat my own injuries and those of others over the years and it is great to have the info in this form. His web site is and you can read more there if you are interested.
