Bruce Frantzis chose Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong from several hundred qigong sets
researched because it is easy to learn—consisting of only seven
movements whereas most medical qigong systems consist of 50 to 100
movements—yet it yields the majority of the energetic healing and health benefits of these longer systems.
Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong is practiced by millions of people in China to release stress and maintain superior health, as well as to help prevent cancer and heal chronic disease. Chi, internal life-force energy, is the foundation of all Chinese medicine, as well as the power behind the internal martial arts. In acupuncture, needles are inserted into specific points along energy channels to stimulate and balance chi flow throughout the body. Dragon and Tiger uses your hands and simple body movements to achieve the same goal. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, this 1500-year-old medical qigong set can quickly give you a recognizable feeling of chi in your body.
I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
