Heal Yourself With QiGong

A new book has been published in St.Catharines by local QiGong and Tai Chi Master George Picard.

Sifu Picard has students throughout North America who are teaching an ancient healing modality called QiGong. Many of these students, including Medical Doctors and other health care professionals, have experienced firsthand the healing power of "QiGong" as taught by Sifu Picard.

His new book "Heal Yourself with QiGong" has simplified Chinese Medicine concepts so that anyone can understand why QiGong is so effective in healing illness. The first printing was sold out to Qigong instructors and schools in Canada and the United States. It is currently in its second printing.

Forward by Master Helen Wu: "May I congratulate Mr. George Picard, a private student of mine, on the publication of his new book! George began his Traditional Private Training Programme with me in 2002. After many years of learning and practice he dedicated himself to pass on the family traditions and knowledge as a fourth-generation teacher in the Wu Yi Jie He family system of health and healing. Sifu George’s excellent learning attitude and perseverance allowed him to gain knowledge of the traditional Chinese way of training and to learn Chi Kung, Tai Chi and Kung Fu philosophies and techniques. He has proven himself to be a disciplined and determined student who has the capability to succeed in whatever he chooses to do. This book is his willingness to share his knowledge of Chi Kung and healing with others. Also, it is his strong desire to achieve optimum health and to help others. He hopes anyone can understand the principles of healing with this ancient martial art. Anyone who follows the information in this book will in fact improve their health to some degree. It is my honor to introduce Mr. George Picard to his readers. May you enjoy his book and be well in all your efforts on the path to optimal health and deep satisfaction with life." - Helen X.

"I've practiced many forms of 'body mind exercise' and for reasons I am not completely aware of, the 24 Posture Therapeutic QiGong creates a different kind of energy for me, in body and mind. It's a daily practice for me. If I can't take it to nature, nature comes to me with this revitalizing and grounding flow of movements. Guests at our cleansing renewal center spend a week learning about health, nutrition, and movements. One thing most want to take home is the 24 Posture Therapeutic QiGong practice!" - Catherine Garceau Olympic Bronze Medalist, Sydney 2000

"As a fifty-seven-year-old marathon runner, I needed massage or chiropractic adjustments frequently...not anymore since I started doing QiGong. I have also been a practitioner of yoga for thirty years, and find QiGong more practical, safe and effective in maintaining a healthy spine. This book is inspiring, a must read for anyone looking for better health!" - Roland Thomas, BSc, ND - Owner, BIOAGE, Advanced Nutritionals

"Over the past year, we have been having a national debate in the United States about universal health care and the economic impact such a program could have on our economy. It’s becoming obvious that we as individuals are going to have to take more personal responsibility for our overall health and wellbeing in order to protect ourselves and keep costs down. This book describes a method of maintaining health, reducing stress, and decreasing our dependence on drugs, which is both effective and economical and has withstood the test of time. I highly recommend QiGong to all of my patients and to everyone who reads this book." - Roger G. Schneider, MD, FACOG

"QiGong holds the key to healthful living. George Picard has true passion for this art and its potential to improve lives. His written words convey a wealth of knowledge and experience offered in plain language that demystifies 4000 years of wisdom. There is a message here for everyone from the elite athlete to those living with chronic illness. Reading this book should make you want to make daily practice of QiGong as much a part of your life as eating well, exercising and brushing your teeth." - P.J. Klein, PT, EdD
