The Chinese healing arts have a long, proud history of over 5,000 years, and combines meditation, relaxation, physical movement, mind-body integration and breathing exercises to restore harmony to mind, body and spirit.
Australian Qigong Master Simon Blow has created a unique series of three Book/DVDs incorporating his own healing journey from a near-fatal accident at the age of 19 to becoming an inspiring, internationally respected teacher. In The Art of Life, Absorbing the Essence and Restoring Natural Harmony, Simon shares the techniques and philosophies taught to him by Qigong Masters in the sacred mountains of China and at a Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital in Beijing.
The books contain the 'why to' and how to' of this powerful technique, and the DVDs present the exercises and meditations in a clear, easy-to follow format, and in peaceful surroundings. The books also contain inspiring stories of those who have transformed their lives by practising this ancient healing art.

It includes the legendary Ba Duan Jin (Eight Pieces of Brocade), and Taiji Qigong Shibashi - 18 flowing movements to balance Yin and Yang.

"Tai Chi Qigong is a gentle way of exercising the whole body and provides long- term benefits. I recommend it to my patients as an effective way of improving muscle tone and joint mobility. Those who practise regularly have fewer problems with their muscles and joints and often report an increased sense of health and wellbeing. An excellent video with clear and simple instruction."
