One morning in 1979 Mallory Fromm awoke in his Tokyo apartment with agonizing pain shooting through half of his body. A series of specialists were unable to cure the pain, which grew worse until Fromm could no longer walk. Just when he had given up all hope, a friend introduced him to an aged Japanese woman who cured him using her healing art based on ki, the life energy that animates the entire universe, and that flows through each and every one of us.

The Book of Ki presents you with a thorough understanding of what ki is, then teaches you how to access your ki. A series of exercises teaches you how to strengthen, smooth, and balance your ki, and shows you how to transmit your ki to heal yourself and others. Photographs accompanying each exercise clearly show you where to position your hands to maximize the flow of ki in the body.

The Book of Ki also tells the story of Kayoko Matsuura, the brilliant healer who saved Mallory Fromm and countless others. It is an in-depth and moving account of a woman whose simple but revolutionary healing art the West is only now ready to understand.

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH

One morning in 1979 Mallory Fromm awoke in his Tokyo apartment with agonizing pain shooting through half of his body. A string of specialists was unable to cure the pain, which grew worse until Fromm could no longer walk. Just when Fromm had given up all hope, a friend introduced him to a mysterious, elderly Japanese woman. She began a healing regimen that completely cured him by initiating him into her healing art based on ki, the life energy that flows through each and every one of us.

The Book of Ki presents you with a thorough understanding of what ki is, then teaches you how to access your ki through breathing. Having gained access to it, a series of exercises teaches how to strengthen, smooth, and balance your ki, and finally how to transmit it to heal yourself and others. An essential tool for maintaining general well-being, ki can also be used to heal stress-related aches and pains, sleeping problems, hair loss, appetite and digestion difficulties, and stress-related psychological problems. Photographs accompanying each exercise clearly show you where to position your hands to maximize the flow of ki in the body.

The Book of Ki also tells the story of Kayoko Matsuura, the brilliant healer who saved Mallory Fromm and countless others. It is an in-depth and moving account of a woman whose simple but revolutionary healing art the West is only now ready to understand.
