"In the last few decades, the public perception of acupuncture has shifted from outdated and based on superstition to being increasingly accepted. While its efficacy in treating a number of chronic conditions has been proven, a scientific basis for understanding how it works has remained elusive. Invisible Rainbow explores the progression of acupuncture research from its unsuccessful beginnings to the ultimate discovery of a scientific basis for acupuncture and other traditional therapies centered on the subtle coherence patterns of interacting electromagnetic waves and fields. Changlin Zhang describes these developments within the context of science's somewhat parallel development from its 19th century focus on materialism, reductionism, and closed systems to its realization of the mass-energy equivalence, electromagnetic field, and its study of open complex systems"
