Within every person there is a place full of energy, health, and happiness.

An ideal complement to the treatment of chronic pain, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, headaches, and even heart disease and cancer, Chi Kung is a way to take control of your physical, mental, and spiritual health and live a long and healthy life.

In Simple Chi Kung, Taoist master Mantak Chia distills thousands of Chi Kung practices into one simple daily routine perfect for beginners and ideal as a warm-up to more advanced practices. Designed to relax our muscles, loosen the joints, improve circulation, and develop flexibility, strength, resiliency, and suppleness, the gentle, flowing movements of Chi Kung mirror the movements of nature and help practitioners connect to their own inner flow of chi, clearing blockages and stagnation in our life-force energy and tapping in to our natural powers of healing and disease prevention. Walking readers step-by-step through each exercise, from movement work with the knees, hips, and spine to internal energy work through controlled breathing, Master Chia explains how daily practice of Chi Kung cultivates life-force energy, a stronger immune system, emotional balance, and spiritual awareness, transforming the patterns and assumptions that limit our body and mind as well as enhancing our connection to nature and the universe.
