Eastern Healing contains clear descriptions of how practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and other Eastern therapeutic systems, diagnose and treat their patients - with remarkable rates of success. It provides a wealth of information on Eastern disciplines most commonly practised in the west, including yoga, Chinese herbalism, acupuncture, meditation, qi gong, do-in, t'ai chi, shiatsu and kum nye. You'll also benefit from sample introductory sequences, for gentle practise sessions. This amazing book provides just the right balance of information and inspiration - to learn all the basic background we need to enable us to start asking the right questions about Eastern approaches to healthcare in the light of our western needs. Jacqueline explains in her forward to Eastern Healing, 'Many doctors today refer patients to an acupuncturist, or Chinese herbalist, especially for conditions such as eczema or asthma that are difficult to treat by orthodox methods. The message is spreading that Western medicine, based on an empirical scientific view of how the body works, cannot help us to regain the inner balance of energies, and of mind and body, that is one of the key foundations of our overall health and well-being. To acquire this balance we must look to the East.'
