Description
Virtually unknown outside of China, Ki-kou is an ancient healing technique that is a unique combination of mindful targeted breathing, simple flowing movements, and restful poses. These gentle exercises, handed down for centuries by traditional Chinese doctors, are designed to harness your body's own natural healing abilities.
Ki-kou is a powerful weapon against illness that moves beyond many traditional yoga techniques, offering targeting healing benefits. Using the principle of chi, considered by Eastern disciplines to be the energy source that carries life through your body, this step-by step guide brings improved health and self-awareness while targeting specific health complaints ranging from the common-cold, to cancer, to back pain.

The gentle yet highly effective nature of the Ki-kou technique makes it appropriate for everyone from those just starting to exercise to athletes—from teenagers to older adults. Ki-kou can be used as a stand-alone fitness and healing program or in combination with traditional yoga, QiGong, or western exercise plans.

About the Author
Dr. Li Xiuling was born in Beijing, China, in 1949. Her parents, grandparents, and ancestors were traditional Chinese doctors, and the family home has been used for Chinese medicine for the last 800 years.

Starting as a child, Dr. Li was educated by her family in Chinese herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, and chi, the vital energy force of all life.

At the age of 18, she opened a Chinese medical clinic, and educated and trained 12 Chinese doctors. After that, she entered Beijing Medical University to learn Western medicine. After graduating from Beijing Medical University, she studied at the Institute of Chinese Traditional Medicine, while working at an elite medical center in Beijing.

She also studied at the Nippon Medical School, in a program to combine Eastern medicine with more scientifically based Western methods. She is presently a member of the Japan Eastern Medical Organization.

Today, Dr. Li studies neurology at Tokyo Women's Medical College and is a lecturer in the Department of Neurology, the First Hospital, Beijing Medical University. She recently recorded- for the first time known- the system of secret Chinese breathing techniques known as Ki-kou, a system handed down from generation to generation of Chinese healers.
