Paolo Consigli

Dr Paolo Consigli is a psychologist and practitioner of holistic medicine and acupuncture. He practises in Milan and teaches at the Medical Association for Chinese Medicine in Europe. He has written articles on subjects ranging from Jewish mysticism to humour, from post-natal depression to Kafka and Walter Benjamin, and has written a very successful book on acupuncture.

He was inspired to write this book after becoming aware in his clinical experiences that water was always present as a catalyst of transformation and catharsis.
