Oriental medicine was not developed in a laboratory. It does not advance through double-blind controlled studies, nor does it respond well to petri dish experimentation. Our medicine did not come from the statistical regression of randomized cohorts, but from the observation and treatment of individuals in their particular environment. It grows out of an embodied sense of understanding how life moves, unfolds, develops and declines. Medicine comes from continuous, thoughtful practice of what we do in clinic, and how we approach that work. The practice of medicine is more — much more — than simply treating illness. It is more than acquiring skills and techniques. And it is more than memorizing the experiences of others. It takes a certain kind of eye, an inquiring mind and relentlessly inquisitive heart. Qiological is an opportunity to deepen our practice with conversations that go deep into acupuncture, herbal medicine, cultivation practices, and the practice of having a practice. It’s an opportunity to sit in the company of others with similar interests, but perhaps very different minds. Through these dialogues perhaps we can better understand our craft.

Great information for acupuncturists or those interested in Chinese Medicine

This new podcast is a wonderful resource for both acupuncturists and those who want to dive deep into Chinese medicine. This podcast is a great way to get into some important topics with some great guests. I consider this a must-listen for both practicing acupuncturists and aficionados alike.


This podcast fills a hole in available information. I've basically stopped buying new books because I've grown tired of poor writing, rite prescriptions, cursory discussions, and piece meal approach to a vastly intricate medicine. More please.

Best new show in town

This is a serious step in the right direction for the field of East Asian medicine. Way to go, Michael Max, for bringing our medicine and culture fully into the new millennia! Any practitioner who is interested in enriching their understanding of our medicine needs to be listening in to these discussions. Please keep 'em coming, Michael!
