Chi Kung : Taoist Secrets of Fitness and Longevity

Chi Kung is the ancient Chinese art for strengthening health to prevent and treat diseases, as well as to prolong life. Literally translated, it means “breathing energy, ” but it is much more. Unlike other works on the subject, this book was carefully framed to be understood by the Western mind without losing the flavor and spirit of Chi Kung’s Chinese origins. For the first time ever the secrets of the Wild Goose Chi Kung form are brought to the Western in easily understood terms.
