Details
Ancient Chinese civilization accumulated a wealth of experience in health preservation, much of which has been handed down to the present day. An Illustrated Handbook of Traditional Chinese Health Preservation draws on documents of traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine, cultural relics and archeological findings to present 26 sets of pictures regarding qigong, daoyin, diet and living habits, dating from the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) to 1911. It also provides a brief introduction to the birth, development, changes and practice modes of each method.
This book was compiled by leading experts on the documents and literature of traditional Chinese medicine. The pictures, mostly photocopied or reproduced from the originals, are all exquisite and rare works of the past, and demonstrate the distinctive traditional Chinese characteristics of this approach to health care.
The book may serve as a reference for those who wish to practice the exercises to preserve health and prolong life, as well as a valuable data source for lovers and researchers of traditional Chinese health preservation.
Translated from nearly 100,000 characters in the Chinese edition, the book contains about 700 pictures and adopts a format of 150×223 mm.
