Staff Reviews


From his wealth of experience with qigong and Taoist masters, Cardoza has specifically selected exercises that can be taught in a book, learned quickly, and have profound effects. Line drawings neatly illustrate, and the clear, friendly text gives both Western and Eastern perspectives on how the exercises work. The book covers all the major organ systems and common complaints, and includes suggestions for designing your personal exercise routine. If you do them, these deceptively simple practices can gradually reverse unhealthy conditions, restore health and ensure you will enjoy life as long as you live.

— Diane, Book Buyer
