--David Simon, MD, cofounder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and author of Free to Love, Free to Heal "Dr. Charles Moss catapults the discipline of Five Element acupuncture into the contemporary framework of an individual's response to life's stressors. His Five Adaptation Types each embody the qualities of an element, and he lucidly animates them with snapshot stories from his clinical practice. This is the inevitable next step of integrating the classical Five Element model into modern medicine's understanding of mind-body dynamics."

Helms, MD, president of Helms Medical Institute and founding president of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture "Dr. Charles Moss, a masterful physician and acupuncturist, penetrates the mysteries of classical Chinese medical thinking to give us a truly useful guide to meeting life's challenges.

Dr. Moss makes ancient wisdom immediately applicable to dealing with modern stress, giving us clear, specific instruction for using our adaptive strengths to live a healthy, more conscious life."
