Health and Long Life the Chinese Way
Health and Long Life: The Chinese Way brings together the wide variety of Chinese medical and spiritual methods in one integrated volume. It provides not only a basic description, but also discusses the relationship of Chinese healing to contemporary Western science and religious Daoism. The book begins with a survey of the basic concepts of Chinese medicine, followed by a presentation of clinical and contemporary practices in various countries. A third part deals with ways of balancing qi, such as Fengshui, diets and sexual practices, while the last section presents a well-informed discussion of self-cultivation methods. Easy to read, with numerous charts and illustrations, and enriched by exercises that encourage readers to examine their own practices and attitudes, Health and Long Life is a great resource for anyone interested in Chinese healing.
