Product Details

A comprehensive text in two distinct parts. The first section summarises the Chinese physiological theory of vital energy that underlies Chi Kung and then goes on to provide a Western physiological understanding of its mechanisms and how it benefits health. To counter the mystique which often surrounds this ancient practice, the authors avoid the heavily esoteric or pseudo-scientific approach of many current explanations. The text provides a concise reference for beginners and experienced practitioners of Chi Kung, teachers and health professionals. As a supplement to section one, a set of useful preliminary exercises is offered that can form part of any daily health regimen for practitioners and non-practitioners alike. The newly added second section examines the traditional understanding of Chi Kung and its benefits in light of analysis of scientific research into the theory and efficacy of Chi Kung.

TAI CHI FOR YOU by P J Farrell MNIMH

Tai Chi for You: Simple, Tai Chi and Chi Gung Exercises for Daily Health Maintenance (Chi Gung for Health)

A Tai Chi and Chi Gung-based programme of exercise. The emphasis of the text is to encourage a regular, daily routine as part of a pro-active approach to health and well-being without the need to understand complex Chinese or Western medical theory. The programme is not derived from mere theory nor empirical research, but from exercises practised on a regular basis by the author and friends to useful effect. The graded format of the book enables use of the exercises as effective stand-alone sets or as a preparation for those wishing to enter into a more in-depth study of Tai Chi with a qualified teacher. An extended appendix provides clarification of important points such as mindfulness in movement and briefly emphasises the importance of a balanced diet etc. and taking responsibility for ones’ own health, thus reducing over-reliance on medical interventions.
