Qigong, one of the legacies in the treasure-house of Chinese medicine, has a history of three thousand years. It is an effective means of medical treatment as well as health protection with distinctive national features. It plays an active role in preventing and treating diseases, protecting and strengthening health, resisting premature senility and prolonging life. Particularly, it has unique effects in treating chronic and difficult diseases. That is why in ancient times Qigong was called "the method to eliminate diseases and prolong life". Self-controlled Qigong therapy is a method to control the body's function through Qigong practice and keep it under a stabilized appropriate state which is most favourable to overcoming the body's diseases. Qigong practice depends greatly on the practitioner's subjective initiative. It lays stress on viewing the various parts of the human body as a whole, emphasizing the inner factors, taking both motion and quiescence into consideration, making the diagnosis and giving treatment on the basis of an overall analysis of the illness and of the patient's condition. It also emphasizes: organically combining mental daoyin, postural daoyin, and breathing daoyin, proceeding from the easy to the difficult and from the exterior to the interior, progressing step by step in an orderly way and practicing assiduously and perseveringly so as to achieve the goal of training and fostering Qi, promoting the flow of internal Qi, maintaining a balance between yin and yang, dredging the channels and collaterals, regulating Qi and blood, treating diseases and protecting health, strengthening the body and prolonging life….

This book introduces to the readers the writer's rich experience in Qigong practice by explaining to them the theory of self-controlled Qigong practice, the five basic Qigong patterns, the cancer-treating Qigong pattern, the hypertension-treating Qigong pattern, the massaging Qigong pattern, and some specific deviation-rectifying methods. To help the readers "suit the remedy to the case", some prescriptions for and case studies of some common diseases are arranged at the end of the book. Most of the cases reflect the writer's own experience in Qigong practice.
