As a bone health specialist you can bet I'll recommend that all my clients look into Davis' qigong exercises for osteoporosis.”—Susan E. Brown, PhD, CNS, Director of the Osteoporosis Education Project “This is the most understandable workbook of qigong exercises that I have come across.  Deborah Davis covers the basics in simple terms with personal comments. While written specifically for women, the book begins with an excellent overview of qigong and its techniques.  I’ve already recommended it to some male friends.”—Anna Jedrziewski, Spirit Connection New York, NY, New Age Retailer
