Qigong is an aspect of traditional Chinese medicine that involves coordinating breathing patterns with physical postures to maintain health and well-being. Liu Zi Jue: Six Sounds Approach to Qigong Breathing Exercises is an accessible, fully-illustrated guide to this particular qigong exercise, which focuses on breath control. Liu Zi Jue regulates and controls the rise and fall of Qi (vital energy) through the inhalation and exhalation of six sounds. The exercises feature slow, gentle movements that are safe and easy to learn and are suitable for people of all ages and in all conditions of health. The routine strengthens the liver, heart, spleen, lungs and kidneys, thus helping to balance the energy and functions of the internal organs, and has also been shown to have a calming effect and to alleviate stress. Each routine is described step-by-step, and is illustrated with photographs and key points. The authors also point out common mistakes and offer advice on how to correct these. Complemented by an appendix of acupuncture points and accompanied by a DVD, this book will be of interest to Qigong and Tai Chi practitioners at all levels, students of martial arts and anyone interested in Chinese culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This production scores for its novelty value and clarity of its actual teaching. -- Tai Chi Finder Limited
With these books the Chinese Health Qigong Association have come close to providing everyone with their own personal qigong instructor. -- Tai Chi Finder Limited
Liu Zi Jue is also known as "the Six Healing Sounds", "the Six Qi Method" and "the Six Word Secret". This is a classical system first written down in the sixth centruy. Originally, the practice was a breathing exercise using the six sounds but later body movements were added to the practice. The book and DVD give the most comprehensive description of how to make the sounds correctly. There are very specific instructions on how to position the mouth, teeth and tongue and, of course, you hear the correct sound on the DVD. The DVD is very professionally and beautifully done and is one of the best that I have seen. The practitioners demonstrating the forms are clearly very experienced and are excellent models to follow. -- Medical Qigong Education Centre
