Acknowledgements

The difficulty of defining accurately the sources of one' s ideas, points of view, and information is well known. The translation of this book, a book involving many ancient and modern ideas of Qigong practice, the philosophy of Zhuuyi(ihe Book of Changes) and medical sciences, has been influenced by the thoughts and efforts of so many colleagues and friends that to most of them I can offer only this general acknowledgement of my indebtedness.

To Dr Zhao Shili, professor and director of Shandong Provincial Anti-epidemic Station, who has been an unfailing source of constructive advice throughout the years when the translation of this book and many of my other translations and compilations concerning Qigong, massage, preventive medicine and health education and promotion were taking shape, I express my gratitude especially. For much immediate help and suggestions in my mastery of the theory of traditional Chinese medicine and in the preparation of the translation of the text of this book, I thank Dr Yu Changzheng, professor and director of Traditional Chinese Medicine Research Institute of Shandong Province.

I am deeply grateful to Mr Sun Xigang, a senior translator and medical information specialist as well as the director of Shandong Provincial Medical Information Institute, for his kind help in the translation of the bo&k. Finally, I would like to
