In The Way of Healing Master Lam presents a simple programme of Chi Kung and Tai Chi exercises which will gently improve your chi - the inner energy flow which is vital to good health. Although Chi Kung is a gentle exercise, it is as disciplined as any martial art. Learning to stand still requires concentration, but, once mastered, the simple positions will stabilise your energy, correct postural problems and clear blockages in your internal pathways. The routines are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness and there are special modifications for people with disabilities or those who are in poor health. Written in six chapters, The Way of Healing comprises an Introduction to the Chinese theory of energy and its role in good health; Chapter 1 introduces the basic Chi Kung postures and techniques, with more intensive movements added in Chapters 2 and 3; Chapter 4 explains a variety of massage techniques - based on the Chinese theory of the five energies, water, metal, wood, fire and earth - which can be used to treat minor ailments such as back pain, headaches, twists and sprains. Chapter 5 offers special guidance on using the routines for invalids, or those with restricted physical mobility due to ill health or disability. This best-selling title has been rejacketed and released in a new edition to meet the continuing demand for titles on Chi Kung and TCM.
