 Back Pain Relief: Chinese Qigong for Healing & Pre (View larger image)

The spine is the root of all motion - qigong exercises can help eliminate back pain 'People who suffer from severe, chronic back pain know how it can utterly disrupt and damage one's life ... Moreover, chronic pain was not previously all that well understood ... If no underlying cause could be found for the pain, then the patient was told that very few treatments are available, or worse, the pain must be in your head ...' - 'About 80 percent of the population suffers from a bout of low back pain at some point in their life... For obvious reasons, athletes are at greater risk of sustaining a lumbar (lower) spine injury due to physical activity' - University of Maryland Medicine. Young or old, sedentary or athletic; it is likely that you will experience some sort of back pain injury in your lifetime. Since the spine is the root of all motion, a healthy back is vital to well-being. Although Western Medicine has made great progress in treating spinal illnesses and lower back pain, it has only limited success in actually healing it. Chinese Medicine, over the last four thousand years, has developed many of its own methods to treat spine problems, including Qigong exercises, acupuncture, massage, and herbal treatments. By doing Qigong exercises, you can effectively treat many cases of spinal illnesses and rebuild the strength of your torso, which is the root of complete healing. This book introduces Qigong exercises that can restore the health of the spine. Some of the exercises are designed to heal a condition, others to help rebuild the strength of the joints, still others to help keep the back healthy and prevent further problems from developing. 'One of America's most sought-after Instructors of Qigong' - Omega Institute. 'Yang Jwing-Ming is indeed a master when describing the extensive Chinese concept of Qi' - Perry Chapdelaine, Sr. author & Executive Director of The Arthritis Fund 'Dr. Yang merits the highest praise for his efforts to meld Eastern and Western medical understanding in the hopes of achieving greater synergy between the two' - Thomas Gutheil, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
