Qigong is the simple and natural way to ensure that these needs are met. Combining gentle movements with centuries-old meditation techniques, Qigong is the perfect holistic fitness practice for the busy woman who has only a few minutes to herself in the car, at lunch, or just before falling asleep at night.
Yanling Lee Johnson, a survivor of China's Cultural Revolution and a longtime Qigong healer and practitioner, addresses the stresses that women of all stages of life face, as they negotiate modern living. Let her teach you simple techniques for maintaining balanced health.

Yanling Lee Johnson was born in Beijing, China, November 1944. She first became interested in Herbs and Qigong at the age of three, watching her uncle treat his patients using herbs and Acupuncture. Her whole childhood, in fact, was spent in the Chinese Qigong community, bearing witness to people around her using Qigong and herbs to heal their internal and external illness, all the while reading and practicing on her own.
Jeanne Elizabeth Blum, author of Woman Heal Thyself
We are blessed because Yanling had the courage to survive China's cultural revolution and to write this Qigong guide. Her personal story is inspiring, the book well written, clear, informative and essential for any woman trying to live in this stress-filled new millennium. I read it in one sitting and will recommend it to all my clients.
