About the Book

We live in a fast-paced, busy world, and many of us are stressed out and anxious as a result. If you suffer from anxiety but have found little relief from modern western treatments, or if you are looking for complimentary treatment, the ancient practice of qigong-which can be understood as the cultivation of internal energy-may offer you relief.

Qigong is rooted in Chinese philosophy and medicine, and it utilizes breathing, movement, and awareness exercises to promote healing and aid in meditation. In The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety, world-renowned and respected qigong master Kam Chuen Lam presents the first workbook for overcoming anxiety problems utilizing traditional Chinese energy-focusing exercises. By following these simple and accessible step-by-step exercises, readers will learn to transform feelings of anxiety into resilience and inner strength. The workbook also contains helpful illustrations to help you carry out these exercises.

In the book, Lam will help you think about anxiety, and yourself, in a different way-as a whole. You'll also learn to stop resisting moments of anxiety and other strong emotions, but rather to embrace them within the larger flow of your body's energy field. By doing this, you will ultimately strengthen and cultivate the natural energy you possess.

Author Kam Chuen Lam has been a traditional Chinese healer for over forty years, and is an internationally respected authority on the Chinese health systems of Chi Kung and Tai Chi. To find out more, visit www.lamkamchuen.org.

The ancient healing exercises he shares from decades of experience are presented in a format that is easy to understand, learn, and practice. Having worked with some of these exercises I can personally say they cultivate more peace, calm, and body awareness. This is a book I will be recommending to many of my clients for years to come!”
-Tahir Bhatti, MD, wellness physician, director of Integrative Holistic Services, and associate clinical professor in the department of psychology at the University of California, San Diego


“In a world where everyone experiences stress and worry, what a gift it is to read The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety. Master Kam Chuen Lam introduces readers to the ancient tradition of qigong in a friendly and accessible way. He teaches simple yet potent methods for relaxing both physical and emotional tension. His instructions are revolutionary in that he encourages us not to reject feelings of anxiety. Instead, by practicing these qigong exercises we become aware of our greater energy field and learn how to regulate our nervous system even when tension arises. This book is for anyone who wants to tap into their inner strength and live a calmer, healthier life.”
-Amy Conway, MPH, senior managerial consultant for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California
“Having worked for over thirty years in a busy and demanding dental practice, I am no stranger to stress at work. I can, without hesitation, attribute my current well-being largely to my daily practice and enjoyment of qigong. Being calm as a practitioner, I am able to bring harmony to the way I run my practice and patients enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. I strongly believe that Master Kam Chuen Lam's unique lineage, wisdom, and extensive knowledge [make this book] a must-have for all busy and stressed professionals who also want to remain truly healthy whilst having to endure daily challenges at work and home.”
-Thye Yeoh, qigong student and dental practitioner in the UK
“Do not let the simplicity of the exercises in this book fool you. ... I work as the compliance director of a major financial firm in London-a highly stressful job-and I can vouch from my own experience for the profundity of these exercises and the enormous wisdom of Master Kam Chuen Lam's teaching.”
-Charles Beck, qigong student and director of compliance, London, UK
“Anxiety is part of the `broken brain' syndrome that millions of Americans suffer from. Conventional medicine can mask the symptoms, but it doesn't tackle the root cause. That's what the total mind-body system of qigong does. In this groundbreaking workbook, Master Kam Chuen Lam shows us how to use our own life-force energy to lift our minds and bodies to a new level of wellness. Open this book to any page and you'll find it's one of the most practical, helpful, and friendly guidebooks to your own well-being you can imagine.”
-Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution
“True health is more than exercise and good nutrition. It includes peace of mind. Those who possess it glow and seem to have access to a wellspring of pure energy. If you've ever wondered how to become such a person, qigong Master Kam Chuen Lam can guide you there.”
-Susan Piver, founder of the Open Heart Project
“Qigong combines two approaches to treating anxiety that are known to work: exercise and mindfulness. This highly accessible and readable workbook should help many more people enjoy the benefits of qigong.”
-Elizabeth Murray, general practitioner and professor of emergency health and primary care at the University of London, UK
“This book comes at the right time. More than ever, employees and managers are struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing speed and constantly rising demands of business life. The ensuing stress and burnout is literally killing people. Western approaches to dealing with the resulting issues have reached their limits. Master Kam Chuen Lam's workbook is addressing the root cause-anxiety-in a new way. It is based on age-old Chinese wisdom and Lam's own life's work devoted to the study of human energy. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to be successful in the long run.”
-Thomas Apfel, corporate account manager at IBM
“Master Kam Chuen Lam's new book about dealing with anxiety is a revelation on its own. During my daily interaction with dental patients, I come across a big percentage of anxiety cases. I have been aiming to incorporate Master Kam Chuen Lam's relaxation techniques during treatment. As a result, patients often relax so much that they're telling us when they get off the dental chair that they feel as if they had a good rest! It is without a doubt, that in this book, various daily issues are addressed in an effective manner. Conventional Western medicine has no ammunition to combat stress or anxiety for everyday life or work. Look no further, Master Kam Chuen Lam's new book provides you with the essential elements to survive today's hectic lifestyle and emerge unscathed with simple techniques. It's the first time I've come across such an informative and to-the-point read. . It is a beacon of hope in today's jungle.”
-Maria Maliderou, DDS, MSc, qigong student and dentist based in London, UK
“Stand, be still, and master anxiety. Master Kam Chuen Lam's highly-engaging The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety is a gift for anyone struggling with fear.”
-Gary Lopes Cunha, LMFT, LPCC, outpatient psychiatry clinician for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California
“Nowadays, more and more of my patients are stressed, or even burned out, and seek help to cope with the high demands of their hectic lives. In many cases, anxiety is the principal cause of serious discomfort. Since Western medicine is largely trying to deal with these symptoms by using medication, most of my patients feel helpless because they don't know what they can do themselves to improve their situation. The Qigong Workbook for Anxiety, which is based on a profound knowledge of Chinese medicine, addresses the need for an approach everyone can use to deal with stress and anxiety, the most common issues people face today. In this book, Master Kam Chuen Lam, who has dedicated his whole life to the study of human energy, describes proven effective exercises, which are easy to understand and to follow. These are the tools you need to help yourself-and to help others.”
-Helga Apfel

"Master Kam Chuen Lam's qigong exercises are like a warm internal shower that relaxes, yet energizes. They seem a perfect antidote to the anxieties of life and aging. Getting older myself and working with elders, as I do, I can attest to their powerful benefits. This workbook is a wonderful guide and support for new and experienced practitioners alike.”
-Vicki Giella, qigong participant and former manager of the Senior HelpLine, a telephone assistance service for elders, their families, and caregivers

“This book should be required reading for all executives caught up in the pressures of twenty-first century global business. Not only is it a treasure trove of helpful exercises that will significantly ease the stresses and strains of modern life, it is a profound explanation of why stress and anxiety occur and the principles that need to be embraced in order that these stresses do not impact us to the point of disease and dysfunction. As Master Kam Chuen Lam explains so clearly, everything we experience (joy, fear, pain) is an experience of energy. In fact, each of us is a field of energy. One of the principal causes of anxiety is tension within our field of energy. The inevitable outcome of anxiety and tension, when it is not addressed, is pain, disorder, and disease. The good news is that deep inner relaxation is the key to health and this book offers apparently simple positions and gestures that regulate and stimulate the flow of life-giving energy within and around the body. . Releasing tension leads to more appreciation of one's life and more enjoyment of the wonderful world in which we have the privilege to be born.”
-Nick Smith, executive coach, leadership developer, and organizational development consultant at Bath Consultancy Group, Ltd

“I have been a student of Master Kam Chuen Lam for over thirty years. During that time I practiced as a solicitor (attorney) and, for the last twenty-five years until I recently retired, as a lawyer for the Royal College of Nursing, the nurses' professional organization in the UK. The work was immensely satisfying but was often stressful, and sometimes acutely so, with long hours, complex problems to deal with, multiple deadlines, and clients in varying states of distress. I found that of all the things I have tried, qigong has proved to be by far the most effective means of minimizing my own anxiety in almost any situation. . This wonderful book brings all the exercises, postures, and practices that are useful for dealing with anxiety, as well as for cultivating general health and energy, into one place. The explanations and instructions are clear and helpful. All I can say is, `try it for yourself!'”
-Howard Richmond

“In his new workbook, Master Kam Chuen Lam addresses one of the widespread problems of today's fast-moving society. Drawing from his extensive experience of traditional Chinese medicine, he guides the reader along on a journey where one can both learn about the sources of anxiety and find help to adapt one's lifestyle to get rid of it. A must-read for everyone who experiences anxiety disorders and wants to improve his quality of life!”
-J?rgen Baier, managing director at Modellar GmbH, Germany
