Therapeutic Qigong is a form of medical Qigong that was created in the early 1970's, by Dr. Zhuang Yuanmin and other expert Chinese Medical Doctors at the University of Sports Medicine in Shanghai China. This Qigong routine combines physical exercises, stretching, breathing and self-massage. By enhancing energy and blood circulation, Therapeutic Qigong can accelerate the body's healing process and immunity, to help relieve illness and prevent disease.
Therapeutic Qigong is easy to learn and easy to practice. The program is divided into six groups. Each group focuses on different muscles and joints to achieve maximum benefit. You only need 15-30 minutes per day to enjoy the results of this effective Qigong regimen. If you are new to Qigong, you can work on individual groups until you are ready to add others.

Excellent Background and Instructions, Shawn A "Shawn" (Amazon reviewer) March, 2006
This book gets to the point quickly describing the history of Qigong, along with the medical background and overall benefits of practicing Qigong. It is a quick and informative read and leads up very effectively to a "how-to" instructional. Its often difficult to describe the physical movements and mind/breathing techniques without seeing the demonstration, but this book does an excellent job with detailed descriptions. I highly recommend this book to practitioners, novices, and to future/present instructors.
