Overview

It is likely that 1 out of 7 of us will be afflicted with arthritis in our lifetime. Healthy joints are the key to pain-free movement, and qigong can help to promote healthy joints.Although Western medicine has made great progress in treating Arthritis, it has limited success in actually healing it; rather focusing more on relieving pain and inflammation.Over the past four thousand years, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has developed many methods to treat arthritis, including qigong exercises, acupuncture, massage, and herbal treatments. By doing qigong exercises, you can effectively treat many types of arthritis and rebuild the strength of your joints, which is the root of true healing.This book introduces qigong exercises that have been successfully used in China to treat arthritis. It begins with general concepts of Qigong, a summary of arthritis according to both Western and Eastern medicine, an explanation of how qigong treats arthritis, and finally gentle qigong exercises you can use to help prevent, treat and heal arthritis.

Editorial Reviews

World Institute for Self Healing
"Current pharmacological treatments for arthritis are effective to various degrees in controlling the symptoms, but with great drawbacks, including potential toxicity, cost and potential detrimental effects on both mood and immune function. An effective non-pharmacological therapy for arthritis that returns control to the patients without side effect would have a major impact on arthritis treatment. Qigong therapy from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) shows promise in this direction."
