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.

"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!"

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!

“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.”

“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.”
