My back was injured by a trainer; two rotations of traditional physical therapy did little to alleviate the back and hip pain. Rami's Tai Chi and Qi Gong exercises decreased the pain, tremendously increased flexibility (which was to be addressed in PT but was not), and introduced the importance of daily meditation for quality of life. The book contains invaluable information to continually fine tune my body. I wouldn't be able to walk without limping without Rami's help.
This is beautiful and comprehensive book. I haevw many books on this subject, but return ton this one - and the DVD by the same author and title - over and over again. The instructions are very clear and there are lots of helpful illustrations. Every aspect of this beautiful art is broken down so intelligently, and the author seems to have a knack for conveying subtle concepts clearly. I have learned a lot from the chapters on breathing, stances, etc. The four gates breathing technique, regularly pracaticed, has heed me get to sleep on many restless nights. This is a great book all around.
