About this product

Product Information

Qigong is a traditional Chinese movement practice that is most often done to maintain health or to relieve specific illnesses. In this book. Sat Chuen Hon, a master teacher and practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine and Taoist healing arts, presents a system of six gentle yet invigorating exercises, along with complementary meditations and vocalizations, which can improve overall health and increase energy. Unlike many other books on qigong, TAOIST QIGONG FOR HEALTH AND VITALITY includes both the physical exercises and the accompanying meditations and vocalizations, which deepen the healing effects of the practices. Each exercise is illustrated with a series of photographs.Born in China, Hon studied acupuncture and traditional Chinese massage at Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He is also a graduate of Princeton University and received a Masters in Fine Arts in dance from Connecticut College. Versed in Chinese and American scholarship, he is an informative and thorough guide who makes the practice and the philosophy of qigong accessible and relevant. The text is sprinkled with “healing stories” and humorous anecdotes from the author’s twenty-two years of practice. The book’s appendices explain how to troubleshoot problems and answer frequently asked questions about qigong practice.
