Gregory Petaro, M.D. A must for any athlete, whether a weekend warrior or serious competitor. I have used these strategies successfully in my practice.
Kevin V. Ergil, M.A., M.S., L.ac., Director, Graduate Program in Oriental Medicine, Touro College This book should have enormous value to anyone engaged in an active lifestyle or involved in the management of minor trauma, especially as it relates to sports medicine.
For centuries, Chinese martial arts masters have kept their highly prized remedies for common but debilitating injuries as carefully guarded secrets, calling such precious and powerful knowledge "a tooth from the tiger's mouth." Now, for the first time, these deeply effective methods are revealed to Westerners anxious to find alternative ways to treat the acute and chronic injuries experienced by any active person. While many books outline the popular teachings of traditional Chinese medicine, only this one offers step-by-step instructions for treating injuries. Expert practitioner and martial artist Tom Bisio explains the complete range of healing strategies and provides a Chinese first-aid kit to help the reader fully recover from every mishap - cuts, sprains, breaks, dislocations, bruises, muscle tears, tendonitis, and much more. Comprehensive and easy to follow, with 158 drawings to illustrate both the treatment strategies and the strengthening exercises, this one-of-a-kind guidebook will finally give readers complete access to the powerful healing secrets of the great Chinese warriors.
