In this day and age there is a lot of information available online in the form of videos and articles. There is much you can learn about Qigong on the internet. Especially for those who are interested in alternative ways of healing subjects like Qigong, Tai Chi and Reiki.
But if you want to expand your knowledge and are serious on the subject reading books are your best option. There is just too much valuable information packed in traditional books.

As Qigong is getting more popular throughout the western world, more people are discovering this ancient for of healing. This also means more information is coming out in the form of books and DVD’s’. Not always is there the genuine motive to educate and spread the knowledge on Qi, Qigong and TCM.
|The Way of Qigong||The Root of Chinese Qigong||Qigong Through the Seasons||Qigong Meditation||The Healing Promise of Qi|
This is why I decided to compile a list of 5 Qigong books that have proven to be beneficial to beginners as well as to people who already familiar with Qigong. There is no order to these 5 books since the reason to study Qigong is not the same for everybody.
The Way of Qigong

All the basics are covered in this book and the author leaves nothing untouched.
A great reference book for to who wants to learn the fundamentals of Qigong, for beginners as well as guide for experienced practitioners of Qigong.
The Root of Chinese Qigong
While some other books as the one above is more of an encelopedia of Qigong, this book is the oposite and a recomended complementaire book for everyone.
