This small, thorough volume presents different forms of Qigong in detail through fully illustrated exercises and an explanation of its principles. Warming-up exercises, breathing exercises, and a guide to self-massage of the inner organs are included. Also provided is a table describing various exercises, listing their physical benefits and classifying them according to level of difficulty, so that readers can tailor their own personal routines.Kuei, Steven is the author of 'Beginning Qigong Chinese Secrets for Health and Longevity' with ISBN 9780804817219 and ISBN 0804817219.
