HONG KONG-BORN Michael Tse has studied Qigong and martial arts for over 30 years with some of the world's most renowned masters. His Qigong Sifu (teacher), Grandmaster Yang Meijun, passed away in China in 2002 at the age of 104.

She taught him not only most of the surviving forms from the 1,800-year-old Kunlun Dayan {Wild Goose) system of Qigong, but also passed on the Qigong healing skills for which she was so famous.

With this knowledge of Qigong, and his study of Chinese philosophy, history and martial arts, Tse created a series of Qigong exercises called Healthy Living Gong in 1996. This book covers the first part of these imaginative and highly effective Qigong healing tools.

Michael Tse founded the Tse Qigong Centre in England in 1990 along with the popular Qi Magazine, which gives Western readers a deeper insight and understanding of Chinese culture. He divides his lime between Hawaii, where he founded a centre in 2001, and England. He also gives seminars around the world, helping to promote the Qigong skills that have enriched his own life so deeply and have proven a successful way to health and happiness for so many others.

IN THE PAST, people did not have access to paper and pen like we do today. China's earliest writing was done on slips of bamboo that were then stitched together to become a 'book'. You can imagine how heavy some of them must have been. So when learning movements in martial arts and Qigong, people would create a poem to remember the meaning of the movements. Below is a poem created by one of my Qigong students and it catches the essence of the form of Qigong in this book. If you can learn this poem by heart, then it can help you understand how to do each movement and also its benefit.

Poetry in Motion

Collect the Qi From left and right To Dantian, sway From side to side.

Sweep hands to both sides And stand very proud To separate the fog And took for a cloud.

Let's search for fish By the side of the lake Keep head above waist To get rid of headaches.

When golden dragon Stretches its claws Move waist and arms Without pause.

Old tree winds its roots To sink your Qi Imagine how strong Your legs will soon be.

Jade ladder climbs Into the sky;

It helps when your blood pressure Is too high.

Of a beautiful ball Keep a gentle hold To rid yourself of bronchitis and cold.

When you look for treasure At the bottom of the chest It's not the money but good health In which you invest.

Swing the child left and right Shift weight and bend knees It gets rid of tennis elbow And circulates your Qi.

Looked upon as a mysterious practice, reiki originated from Japan, around 1922. Started by a Japanese Buddhist, this practice of purported healing basically uses the palm of an individual to emit positive healing energy unto the patient. Sometimes reiki is referred to as oriental style treatment by professional medical bodies.
