Two Famous Acupuncturists in Ancient China
History records a large
number of famous physicians and
medical practitioners active in ancient China.
At the time of the
legendary Yellow Emperor, Huangdi, around 4,600 years ago,
there was a superb doctor
named Bian Que.
Historical Annals, or Shi Ji,
written by Sima Qian around 100 BCE,
has biographies of two skilled
Yueren, who was called the Bian Que of his age;
and Cang Gong, a Han-dynasty
primary school textbooks contain excerpts
from the Historical Annals.
In one of them, Bian
Que goes to visit Marquis Huan of Cai,
and tells him that he is sick.
The Marquis denies it
and says he feels fine.
Time passes, and the next time Bian Que sees the
Marquis, he tells him that his condition is worse.
But again the Marquis says that he
feels perfectly well.
At their third meeting, Bian Que says nothing to the
Marquis, turns around and walks out of the room.
Before long, however, the Marquis
only had to look at the Marquis to know that his condition was critical.
In another famous
travels to the state of Guo,
where chaos and confusion prevail.
A prince had just died,
and that the palace was
preparing for his funeral and burial.
Upon further enquiry, Bian Que
learned the time of the prince’s death,
and what his appearance was like at
the moment of death.
Bian Que then announced that in fact,
the prince was not
in a comatose state,
caused by a clash between Yin and Yang energy.
His body was motionless
—he was in a coma,
which made it seem he
Que told the king of the State of Guo
that his son’s condition was
ordered his disciple Ziyang to grind a special stone
needle for the purpose.
Bian Que then applied
this stone needle to three acupuncture points
on the top of the head,
where three yang pulses
shortly afterward the prince recovered.
At the time,
people marveled at Bian Que’s
ability to revive the dead,
but this was only one of his remarkable skills.
Bian Que developed his
own system of medical treatment,
which included applying heat to
specific points on the body
and using stone needles at acupuncture points.
If a medical condition
occurred near the surface of the body,
he treated it with medicine and
he used acupuncture.
When needed, he performed
to rebalance the energy in the body,
and he treated illnesses of the
by prescribing medicinal wines.
This is a bust of Bian Que.
These are rubbings from
stone carvings at the big Confucian Temple in Qufu,
which show Bian Que
treating a female patient;
here he is performing surgery;
and here he is performing
Bian Que is depicted with a bird’s body and human head.
“Que” in Chinese means “magpie.”
