Book: Qigong Massage by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming
The practice of qigong massage is one of the oldest methods of healing, built upon five thousand years of study and a highly refined, solid theoretical foundation. Used to improve health, slow down aging, and prevent and treat many types of illnesses, Qigong massage is a vast healing science, and it is the root of many other popular forms of massage therapy.
This DVD is a comprehensive introduction to the art of massage and to the acupressure points, channels, and meridians in the human body. It presents the fundamental techniques and theories 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 practical and useful for recovering from fatigue, aches, pains, tension, and stress. A complete section on Self-Massage is presented to help those who lack a partner or therapist.
This DVD contains 70 minutes of Self-Massage instruction, and 120 minutes of Two-Person whole body massage techniques. An additional DVD-only introduction segment offers a complete overview of the concepts of Qi and Qigong. This DVD also provides a glossary of Chinese qigong massage terminology.
During his thirteen years of martial arts and massage training under Master Cheng, Gin Gsao in Taipei, Taiwan, Dr. Yang studied Tui Na and Dian Xue massage techniques, and herbal treatments. His experience with ‘real life martial art injuries’ and personal use of Qigong massage treatments, along with his scientific background, makes him uniquely qualified to present this profound qigong massage training program.

Great Gift for My Wife Who Is A Massage Therapist, J. Wright (Amazon reviewer) October, 2009
The video was a gift for my wife. She is a massage therapist and she found the video very useful and informative. The only additional comment she had was that she may have to get some of the introductory Qigong videos to help with understanding the basics. Overall she says it is a great product.
5 of 5 stars,ko-reviews.com, Jason Panick, February, 2006
I would recommend this DVD highly to practitioners of Chinese Martial Arts. Anyone doing a lot of strenuous exercise could benefit from a good massage and with the theory and expertise behind this, many will find it beneficial.Wow, This Makes It All So Easy to Understand, Susan L. (Amazon reviewer) September, 2005
This DVD received 5 stars because it is simply an academic masterpiece combined with applicable material. There are GREAT martial arts DVDs out there. But I have not found one person who puts out better DVDs than YMAA. They are the absolute finest quality of production and technical data. Sometimes packed with HOURS of additional seminar and lecture footage.
Great DVD which explains the Chinese view of the body as both a physical body, and a Qi energetic body. It goes on to explain what Qi energy is, how it functions in the body, and how we can influence it with qigong and massage. Its very clear and straight-forward, and uses current American science to explain these ancient Chinese concepts. The quality is excellent. I can't say enough good things about this DVD, even if you're not interested in massage, this has something fascinating to learn...
