C H I N E S E H E A L I NG E X E RC I S E S




Human beings are by nature embodied creatures. The very
foundation of our life is the concrete, material reality into
which we are born and which we shape. As the basis of
our existence, the body is a source of great pleasure and
overwhelming pain, a giver of deep satisfaction and utter
misery, the root of potential perfection and dismal failure.

The Chinese have realized this fact and, over several millennia,
have made the body the foundation of the great human endeavor
of perfection: the perfection of health and well-being, the
perfection of long life in youthful vigor, and the perfection
of spirit in transcendence to an otherworldly realm. They
have always understood the elementary need for accepting
one’s basic inborn qualities while yet working to live up to
one’s full potential, caring for and cultivating the body to the
best of one’s abilities. To this end, they have developed a
plethora of methods, called longevity techniques, that can
restore health, enhance the quality of life, prolong life
expectancy, and even aid in the ultimate goal of spiritual
transcendence.
