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.

    This is an excellent book which provides a simple set of Qigong exercises that you can learn, with easy instructions and illustrations provided. I started learning these practices and noticed an improvement in my internal energy, health, and overall sense of well-being. I do them each day at the start of the day and they set the tone of the day. I highly recommend if you want to start learning qigong and implementing it in your life.

    This is NOT easy! Author says that this qigong system is very easy to learn and do and anyone can do it, it's not true. It's actually very difficult, it took me almost 5 months to do all movements properly. Overall it's good Qigong system and I'll continue doing it. But it takes a long time to learn how to do it properly. You have to coordinate your whole body to do different things at the same time which was difficult for me and I'm young and in good shape, I can't imagine someone who's old or This is NOT easy!

"7 simple movements" yeah right, simple if you don't do them properly.

    This book was a weird one. The introductory text was just wonderful but it didn't really match up well with the practical sections. The author gave great explanations of Qigong and his own life experiences with it. He seemed to really understand the need for some of us battling illness to take it really slow and easy and not to push ourselves to more than 70% of our capacity. He also talked about the need to do some of the exercises lying down if you were seriously ill. This made me really excite This book was a weird one. The introductory text was just wonderful but it didn't really match up well with the practical sections. The author gave great explanations of Qigong and his own life experiences with it. He seemed to really understand the need for some of us battling illness to take it really slow and easy and not to push ourselves to more than 70% of our capacity. He also talked about the need to do some of the exercises lying down if you were seriously ill. This made me really excited, as what he was saying seemed to be just what I needed. After I had read the introduction I was really looking forward to getting started. I have a disease with some similarities to M.S. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or M.E.) I'm housebound and 98% bedbound and so I really hoped this book might give some instructions on how to do Qigong lying down or some up to 5 minute simple and gentle standing ones - seeing as how the author had said how important not overexerting was. But sadly with the exception of maybe a breathing exercise at the start, all there were were exercises that you needed to do standing and which also required far FAR FAR more balance, flexibility, strength and physical and mental stamina and ability than I have. Despite the opening text going on and on about how the author understood physical limitations and the need to lie down to do some exercises to start with, the exercises all seemed to be aimed at elite athletes or professional dancers. I got 4 very well reviewed books on Qigong out from my local library and read them all over a two week period: 1. Qigong illustrated 2. Heal yourself with qigong : gentle practices to increase energy, restore health, and relax the mind 3. Qigong for multiple sclerosis : finding your feet again 4. Dragon and tiger medical qigong : health and energy in seven simple movements The M.S. book was the one that was the most simple and non-demanding and the most suited for an ill person. The first two books were also very good though and did contain at least some simple standing exercises. I liked them both so much that I ended up buying my own copies to work from. This fourth book was completely inappropriate for me and featured exercises way too advanced and difficult for anyone that is seriously or even moderately ill in my opinion. At the end of the book the exercises are described as being challenging even for a professional athlete! Considering that I don't understand why this book is marketed as slowing 'simple' examples of Qigong when this is just not even remotely the case. The Qigong in this book is very complex and involved and would take a large investment of time to master even to an adequate level. You'd almost certainly need a DVD of the moves too. Apparently there is a double DVD set which goes with this book, which makes a lot of sense. I'd recommend this book only for those that have a fair bit of natural balance and flexibility and also the ability to be active and follow very complex instructions. Even better if you have some athletic or dance or martial arts experience. If you have those attributes and lots of free time to practice Qigong this book could be a great choice for you. If I were well enough to try all the exercises in it I'd be so excited to do so (perhaps with the help of a teacher!), the book is really inspiring. It does seem to be aimed at preventing illness than actually treating it though, despite the introductory and cover text. This is a great book, I have no doubt of that, but I think it is completely inappropriate for moderately-seriously ill people and should not really described as 'simple' or easy for the average person either. It is very advanced. Jodi Bassett, The Hummingbirds' Foundation for M.E. (HFME)
