Publisher and Chief Reviewer
Those of us with martial art backgrounds have a fascination for the manipulation of the power of the body's energy field-Chi or Ki. The Chinese use the spelling, Qi. Qi Gong, pronounced Chi Kung, which loosely translates as "Energy Practice." The use of mild stretching movements coupled with breathing exercises and visualization techniques has been around for a long time. The author, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner has taken it to a higher level with this book, using Qigong to develop a body environment conducive to health restoration and disease prevention.
The author does a good job explaining the meanings and benefits of the practice, which is easier than Tai Chi. She uses excellent photos and captions to lead the reader through the movements.
