This book discusses the Chinese medical theory and practice of yang sheng, or "nourishing life", the pursuit of good health and long life. Author Bob Flaws begins by introducing the Chinese medical theories concerning life, death, and longevity. These revolve around the key concepts of essence, qi, and spirit or, "The Three Treasures." He then goes on to describe the importance of a regular lifestyle, proper diet, moderation in sex, rest and relaxation, self-massage, exercise and stretching, qi gong, and Chinese herbal medicine.
