I have used this book and made recommendations for about 4 years now. I first started doing the Excersises when into the martial arts. With These excersises I noticed I could collect / feel the GREAT ENERGY that is available to us. I showed the excersises to my instructor and he began using them daily also. The health benifits from them are amazing. My mother and father ( ages in 60's and 70's ) used them and found that they had old physical problems that healed. Can't go wrong with this book.

This book contains many easy to perform exercises that will transform the quality of your personal health. Similiar to Tai Chi in its gentleness, but much easier to perform and remember. Give it a try and be amazed at the results...

5.0 out of 5 stars Exercise Without Exercising 21 Oct 2000
By Truman J. Siple - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book completes a journey started in China two hundred years ago. I practice Taoism and found this book very helpful in understanding the internal martial arts of Taoism. Master Dong takes you through a journey which is deceptively easy. The student get their first taste of the reverse-breathing technique of the taoist. I can say that the book is presented in a very understandable way with all the motions of each exercise presented a fully as possible. While the book cannot replace the instructions of a master, the book does give the reader a chance to experience the energy flow of the taoist internal martial arts. I found the book very helpful in that the techniques described can be used carefully by a person is not the best of shape and needs a " low impact" exercise technique. The techniques presented in the book are powerfull. I would recommend anyone who tries the forms demonstrated in the book to realize that the forms must be done on a regular bases as a part of a complete taoistic experience to have the best effect on both mind and body. The book really wetted my appetite for more and I have placed the forms demonstrated in the book with my other daily taoist practices. I would recommend this book highly for anyone who would like to try an introduction to taoistic exercises and maybe begin their personaljourney of the "Way".

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Water Runs Deep 29 Jun 2010
By Brian Forrest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Experience - what Nikola Tesla and Wilhelm Reich were experimenting with: the limitless energy field all around us. Experience - what the western medical establishment ignores: the role of nature's energy in the health of the mind and body. Yes, the exercises are gentle, simple, and flowing. If you have not felt energy flowing in your body before, then these claims will sound strange. When I started Chi Gong, I decided to practice without judgment. After about a month of daily practice, I suddenly felt a flash of energetic warmth pass through my breast bone --the first sensation I had of Chi. Since then, the sensation of Chi has grown to the point where I feel as though I am in a warm invisible energy field with these flowing movements. My hands become hot as the energy channels through my body and around me. This little book of Chi Gong technique, by Master Dong, is the definition of still water runs deep. Using this book, your Chi Gong practice will lead you to soothe and repair damaged joints, increase your energy, and ultimately lead to a meditative stillness that borders on another world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively simple, yet powerful 30 Jan 2009
By Demitri Pevzner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The exercises contained in this book, are deceptively simple, but don't let that fool you. The motion is not unlike Taiji Quan or Bagua, only stationary. The exercise can be done even by seniors, as it does not require any straining.

The techniques combined with the breathing, really do create a profound sense of calm, and a warm flowing sensation in the hands and feet. The second section of the book contains some great stending meditations.

I highly recomment this book for anyone looking for a way to improve their health. I can not say this enough, the techniques are soothing, and flow almost naturally, at some points almost like Taiji Quan.
