Physical fitness exercises developed in ancient China as early as 2,500 years ago, when medical practitioners and philosophers recognized the therapeutic benefits of controlled breathing and physical movements. Today, in China and the West, millions of people are deriving immediate and lasting results from Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) and qigong, the most popular forms of traditional exercises. This book teaches you how to perform these time-tested exercises, and introduces as well a number of traditional methods of self-massage which are surprisingly effective in preventing and curing colds, indigestion and eyestrain. Fully illustrated with line drawings and photographs, the book is an ideal do-it-yourself guide to a new world of physical health and spiritual well-being.
