Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Women's Qigong for Health and Longevity is loaded with practical, effective, and transformational information and practices to help all midlife women maintain vibrant health.”—Christiane Northrup, MD

“Having personally experienced the 'magic' of qigong many years ago, I am delighted to see this insightful handbook. As a bone health specialist you can bet I'll recommend that all my clients look into Davis' qigong exercises for osteoporosis.”—Susan E. Brown, PhD, CNS, Director of the Osteoporosis Education Project

“This is the most understandable workbook of qigong exercises that I have come across.  Deborah Davis covers the basics in simple terms with personal comments. While written specifically for women, the book begins with an excellent overview of qigong and its techniques.  I’ve already recommended it to some male friends.”—Anna Jedrziewski, Spirit Connection New York, NY, New Age Retailer

Les mouvements simples proposés dans cet ouvrage sont ciblés et présentés en fonction des différents troubles que peuvent rencontrer les femmes : syndrome prémenstruel, troubles mammaires (contre lesquels la MTC est une aide très efficace), préménopause, ménopause, ostéoporose… Les explications sont très claires, la respiration toujours indiquée. On y trouve de plus la description de la pratique simplifiée des 6 sons thérapeutiques (Liu Zi Jue) utilisés dans les hôpitaux de Chine et leurs usages respectifs pour les femmes, ainsi que des méditations spécifiques. Il serait intéressant, me semble-t-il, qu’un éditeur français ait la bonne idée de le traduire pour en faire profiter les non-anglophones.

Great Book & DVD 18 janvier 2009
Par M. Howell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a personal trainer, senior fitness specialist, mind body specialist, tai chi and yoga teacher I am always looking for wonderful things to add to my classes.

"Women's Qigong for Health and Longevity" by Deborah Davis is an excellent choice. The information is easy to understand and relates well to our modern lifestyle. The exercises are explained well and easy to follow. The six healing sounds and accompanying movements are a beneficial addition to any fitness routine or program.

The specialized chapters: Breast Health, Menopause, Depression, Heart Health etc. help each person set up a program specific to their own needs. This is an added bonus.

Deborah's Dvd "The Spirit of Qi Gong" which contains the six healing sounds and their accompaning exercises is a valuable addition to your wellness library, again it is easy to understand and follow and makes you feel wonderful while doing it as well as when you are finished.

I highly recommend both the book and the dvd to beginners, or those like me who have been practicing for years.

one of the best 10 décembre 2008
Par Kathryn Shimmura - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I used to be intimidated by the thought of learning qi gong (chi gong) - I thought you had to find a master and then work really hard before you could be any good at it. Well, true, in order to be a master, one probably does have to train for a long time, but there are a number of great resources available for learning simple, beginning forms of qi gong to improve your health and energy level. This is one of them. The instructions and pictures make each exercise fairly easy to learn but I'm a person who prefers to be shown how to do something. So I got the author's DVD "The Spirit of Qi Gong" as a companion to the book and am very pleased with both. Many of the exercises in the book are included on the DVD and once you get used to the way they are done, you can pick up the ones that are not on the DVD from the book.
I am pleased that the book focuses on women from 40 and older because I would like to learn how to move into a healthy old age rather than being riddled with chronic diseases, having to take a lot of medications and gradually becoming more and more decrepit.
If you decide to explore qi gong, be aware that there are a number of different forms, that it's part of the huge body of Chinese knowledge which includes Tai Chi, acupuncture, martial arts and herbal medicine( and no doubt other subjects). Look for books and DVDs which give clear, concise directions and explanations and pictures. Take a class if that's available and be patient with yourself. At the beginner's level, the exercises are simple and easy to learn, graceful and rewarding.

Finally! A book on qigong for women by a woman!!! 12 août 2008
Par jerilee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I stumbled upon Women's Qigong for Health and Longevity while looking in a magazine while at a hotel in Ashland, Oregon. There was an article on a local author. I tried to find the book at a couple of bookstores while in Ashland with no luck. I decided to try Amazon as soon as I returned home. No wonder I couldn't find it -- it hadn't been released yet. So I pre-ordered it that day. As soon as I received it and read it, I ordered three more copies to give to my friends! It's a fabulous book! (I studied tai chi and qigong for eight years, but had fallen out of practice.) Now, I am starting to practice again, thanks to finding this book. The information in the book is invaluable to women of any age. It's never too early to start protecting your health and learning to "work your qi" is the best way to start. The book has different routines for different age levels so it can be used for decades! Deborah Davis explains qi and the five element system in a way that is easily understood even without a tai chi/qigong background. I am truly grateful that I have found this book and you will be, too. Buy a couple (get free shipping) and share with friends -- you'll be glad you did!!!

Wonderful discovery! 9 janvier 2009

"I encountered Deborah Davis, and her masterfully produced and engaging DVD `The Spirit of Qi Gong,' early in my recovery from a serious, unexpected health event. Both her counsel and the Chinese exercises have had a profoundly positive effect on my physical and mental health. My now daily practice of Qi Gong--besides consistently significantly reducing my blood pressure!--continues to improve my outlook on life and my ability to deal with life's stresses."

Please buy this book if you are a woman and want to learn about Qigong 22 juin 2009
Par A. Eskamani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I love this book! I take a bi-weekly Qigong class and also have several Qigong videos. However, both of these are taught by men. This book is especially written by a woman for women. It is extremely informative and the pictures are especially helpful and useful. I found it so helpful for me, I bought a copy for my sister.
