Practiced by millions in China to release stress and maintain robust health, Dragon and Tiger qigong is also used to help prevent and heal cancer and to mitigate the effects of radiation and chemotherapy. Frantzis chose Dragon and Tiger from among several hundred sets he researched because its seven simple movements are easy to learn and offer about 80 percent of the health benefits found in the more complex sets of 50–100 movements.

Dragon and Tiger qigong uses simple body movements to accomplish the same chi balancing as acupuncture. Each movement is designed to stimulate not just a single meridian but groups of meridians. In Chinese medicine, the tiger is a metaphor for a strong, healthy liver and powerful muscles, and the dragon is a metaphor for healthy and strong lungs. The Dragon and Tiger form accomplishes three major changes in the body necessary for healing: it releases stagnant chi energy; increases the speed, strength, and evenness of the circulation of chi, blood, and other fluids; and quickly raises the body’s energy levels to boost its natural healing capacities. With over 150 illustrations accompanying clear, thorough instructions, Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong offers an accessible and effective path to health and healing.

Review:

"Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong gives people a powerful way to take charge of their health and well-being."
--Kenneth Lossing, DO, Member of the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Osteopathy

"In this book, Bruce Frantzis maps out vital self-healing practices, with over 650 illustrations, showing you how to boost your immune system and cultivate your body's capacity to heal."
--Michael Reed Gach, PhD, founder of the Acupressure Institute and the author of Acupressure's Potent Points

"Because Dragon and Tiger is a simple and effective qigong practice, it is taught to students at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. Tracing the meridian lines helps our students to become more sensitive to both their own and their patients' chi and enables them to become better acupuncturists."
--John and Angela Hicks, Joint Principals, College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading, England, and coauthors of Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture
