For centuries, Chinese martial arts masters have kept their highly prized remedies for common but debilitating injuries as carefully guarded secrets, calling such precious and powerful knowledge, "a tooth from the tiger's mouth." Now, for the first time, these deeply effective methods are revealed to Westerners anxious to find alternative ways to treat the acute and chronic injuries experienced by any active person.
While many books outline the popular teachings of traditional Chinese medicine, only this one offers step-by-step instructions for treating injuries. The book explains the complete range of healing strategies and provides a Chinese first-aid kit to help the reader fully recover from every mishap - cuts, sprains, breaks, dislocations, bruises, muscle tears, tendonitis and much more. He teaches readers how to:
- Examine and diagnose injuries
- Prepare and apply herbal formulas
- Assemble a portable kit for emergencies
- Fully recuperate with strengthening exercises and healing dietary advice
- Buy ingredients and preparations - both locally and on the Internet
Comprehensive and easy to follow, with 158 drawings to illustrate both the treatment strategies and the strengthening exercises, this one-of-a-kind guidebook will finally give readers complete access to the powerful healing secrets of the great Chinese warriors.
