Qigong Massage—Fundamental Techniques for Health and Relaxation
Qigong Massage, one of the oldest methods of healing, is built upon five thousand years of progress and a highly refined, solid theoretical foundation. Used to improve health, slow down aging, and treat many types of illnesses, Qigong massage is a wide and deep healing science, and the root of many other popular forms of massage therapy.
This comprehensive text by world renowned Qigong scholar, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, presents the fundamental techniques and theory of Qigong massage that therapists can use to enhance their skills, and deepen their knowledge and application of Qi (energetic) healing.
Not only for therapists! Novices will find the instruction and techniques in this book practical and useful for recovering from fatigue, aches & pains, tension and more. A special section on Self-Massage is presented to help those in need of massage treatment benefits, but who lack a partner or therapist.
With over five hundred photographs and illustrations in this book, Dr. Yang will be your guide into the art and science of Chinese Qigong Massage.
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, is a renowned author and teacher of Chinese martial arts and Qigong. Born in Taiwan, he has trained and taught Taijiquan, Qigong and Chinese martial arts for over forty-five years. He is the author of over thirty books, and was elected by Inside Kung Fu magazine as one of the 10 people who has "made the greatest impact on martial arts in the past 100 years." Dr. Yang lives in Northern California.
One of the most sought-after instructors of Qigong.

Dr. Yang merits the highest praise for his efforts to meld Eastern and Western medical understanding….Encyclopedic Overview of the Fundamentals, Tyr Shadowblade (Amazon reviewer) February, 2008
…There is SO MUCH useful information crammed into this text I hardly know what to comment on first...I've read other books on similar subjects (qi, accupuncture, even Erle's infamous Dim Mak Encyclopedia) which barely seemed to scratch the surface, were confusing to read, and left many unanswered questions. None of those books stayed in my collection long. Qigong Massage is a definite keeper, though, as I'm certain to be referring to it many times in the years to come.
Even if you are not a massage therapist (I'm certainly not), this text is an invaluable resource on the subject of qi. A remarkable work.
