Kurzbeschreibung

2. April 2009
Qigong (pronounced chee-gung) is an ancient Chinese practice consisting of physical movements, meditation, creative visualization, and breathing exercises to help revitalize the body and heal the spirit. Similar to tai chi, qigong cultivates vital life-force energy in the body for better health, heightened energy, and longevity. Its powerful benefits have been known in China for thousands of years. This unique book presents over 100 easy, five-minute qigong exercises designed to target specific health issues, from strengthening an aching back and reducing stress to improving sexual function and boosting energy. You can use this book to quickly find the best qigong exercises to target your particular physical and mental health needs. Heal Yourself with Qigong allows you to customize routines, making it ideal for both experienced practitioners and those new to qigong.

Pressestimmen

"Friedman's in-depth studies and prolonged practice of Taoist meditation has enabled her to understand aspects of qigong practice that are not usually uncovered by Western academics and practitioners. Given such a perspective, her book is the first of its kind--lucid, original, and practical." --Grandmaster B.F. YeYoung, Taoist Inner Alchemist and former University Professor of Chinese Philosophy and Arts in China

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's not quite magic, but... 8. Juni 2009
Von T. Tosta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
After three years of antibiotics, trying to rid myself of lyme disease, I had had enough of western medicine. Even in the western med world, there was a big bruhaha between the lyme specialists (who saw most everything as lyme and were sure that there had to be the right antibiotic brew out there somewhere) and the med skeptics (who thought if 30 days meds was good enough for the insurance companies, it was good enough for them). Problem was, I wasn't getting any better. So, on a referral from a friend, I visited this sassy, left coast, NY jewish, former lawyer, acupuncturist who started to pay attention to what I was saying. She treated me with needles and herbs, then Qi Gong. I don't which part did it, but the symptoms went away. Is the disease gone? I don't know. But I feel healthy. I am not beating up my body with antibiotics and I love Qi Gong! Now, she has writtten a book. The book is just as great as she is. She is clear. She is concise. She speaks Qi Gong from a western cultural perspective. So, it makes sense. Thanks, Suzanne, for everything!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible Collection of Qigong Exercises 25. März 2009
Von Robert Ellis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read a handful of books about qigong, including the other books by the same author. This book is simply the best introduction to qigong I've found. Simple, accessible, beautifully designed, it includes clear instructions to more than 100 qigong exercises you can do in five minutes. And the exercises really work; I've used them to rid myself of headaches, sleep better, and ease my back pain, all in just a few minutes.

If you want a more thorough explanation of qigong, I'd recommend The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing as a companion to Heal Yourself With Qigong. But if you just want to see results fast, devour this book and practice the exercises.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hands-down the most accessible book on Qigong ever! 26. März 2009
Von Qigong Convert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you want to use Qigong to improve your health this is the only book you'll ever need. It is filled with so many simple exercise prescriptions for just about any physical or emotional health issue you may be having. It is also written so clearly and accessibly that it is truly a one-size-fits-all kind of book....a must have for anyone that is serious about taking an active role in their own healing.

I have personally benefited greatly from many of the prescriptions in the book especially in regard to stress reduction, mood lifting, insomnia, and digestive issues.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Something for Everyone 10. April 2009
Von A. Siegel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
There is something for everyone in this book, whether you're a complete beginner in Qigong, or have experience. Author Suzanne Freidman has given deceptively simple exercises and movements which create impressive results. All the exercises are gentle, easy to follow, illustrated with drawings, and take five minutes or less. They cover everything from stress reduction/relaxation to weight loss, blood pressure reduction, and headache relief. Meditations and acupoint stimulations are also included.
My personal favorites include an energizing exercise called Wash Your Face (amazing, instant results), the Waterfall Visualization to purge stress (really soothing), Gathering Earth Energy (very grounding), and Liver Qi Massage (mood stabilizer).
Anyone can do these exercises, regardless of physical condition (all exercises can be done standing or sitting) or time constraints. Pick and choose depending on your need of the moment. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great intro to Qigong if you are ill or a beginner or both 10. April 2012
Von Jodi-Hummingbird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book offers a really good basic introduction to Qigong aimed at the average Qigong novice or even people that have various limitations due to illness. For anyone not sure what Qigong is, it could maybe very loosely be described as super-gentle and simple Tai Chi combined with some breathing exercises, visualisations and sometimes some simple meditation techniques.

It makes sense to me that improving circulation, and so Qi (or Chi), can be helpful when you are treating disease. If there is no blood flow to an area, it can't heal. Qigong can also improve respiratory and digestive function, and give you a calmer and less cluttered mind. Keeping your body out of 'adrenaline mode' as much as possible also facilitates healing, as healing can occur only after the ANS shifts from Sympathetic to Parasympathetic dominance (rest, relax and repair mode).

I have a disease with some similarities to M.S. (Myalgic Encepahalomyelitis, or M.E.) I'm housebound and 98% bedbound. Being very inactive and bedbound means you really need to improve your circulation if at all possible, as anyone bedbound will know! Using up up to 5 minutes of my 30 - 60 or so minutes a day I can be upright on Qigong seems a reasonable idea to me. This is right on the cusp of what I am able to do, so I am not sure if I can do it yet but I am going to give it a try very soon and am looking forward to it.

My disease is very slowly improving and even these simple exercises would have been impossible a year ago or even 6 months ago. Despite what some people say, Qigong is not something even in a very simplified version that everyone that is ill will be able to do. It is demanding to do if you are very ill (as is meditation) and should not be done until you feel you can cope with it without causing yourself any type of relapse.

I'm not a fan of Qigong or similar as the only or primary treatment for serious disease though - as if you have nutrient deficiencies and toxin overload which has lead to your disease then you need to correct those things and no amount of Qigoing is going to do that. If you are low in vitamin B6 or magnesium then you need those things and nothing else will do! But Qigong may well have an important role to play in improving circulation, lowering the body's stress levels and promoting a relaxed and healing central nervous system state as part of a larger program encompassing a nutrient dense diet, intelligent supplementation and various detoxification protocols - if you are well enough to do it.

Combing meditation and/or Qigong with great books that talk about genuine healing and treating the causes of disease such as Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life, Detoxify or Die, and Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins can only help your health improve, depending on how much damage done is permanent.

I got 4 very well reviewed books on Qigong out from my local library and read them all over a two week period:

1. Qigong illustrated
2. Heal yourself with qigong : gentle practices to increase energy, restore health, and relax the mind
3. Qigong for multiple sclerosis : finding your feet again
4. Dragon and tiger medical qigong : health and energy in seven simple movements

The MS book was the one that was the most simple and non-demanding and the most suited for an ill person - even though it didn't really have any lying down exercises as I had hoped. The fourth book was completely inappropriate for me and featured exercises way too advanced and difficult for anyone that is seriously or even moderately ill in my opinion. The first two books were very good and had lots of simple standing exercises. I liked them both so much that I ended up buying my own copies to work from.

Qigong illustrated wasn't quite as good as Heal yourself with qigong, so if I had to choose just one of the two books I'd definitely go with the latter. The introductory text was of a far higher quality and very well done, I preferred the illustrations being in line drawing format rather than photos (which can be less clear), and there was a greater variety of exercises given that didn't look very difficult. It contains exercises on breathing, sending chi to your heart, or liver, or kidneys plus exercises to help undo the shoulder issues of being on a computer for too long and lots more.

Even if you are ill, or not that fit, or not that co-ordinated or good with balance or meditation, this book offers a really good non-overwhelming starting point, and is very well done. I recommend it. If you are ill I also recommend seeing if your library has any of these three books before buying them to check that they suit your abilities, if you can.

This author also has a Qigong website and videos available.
