Feng shui is the Chinese art of arranging one's life and surroundings in a way that's harmonious with the environment and universe. It's a 5,000 year-old practice based on observations of the natural world. Chen presents a series of simple exercises and techniques designed to achieve external beauty based on internal beauty.
She starts the external routines with the face, beginning with proper cleansing, and then tells how tp stimulate the circulation. She provides similar information for each part of the body.
Chen then details exercises for a variety of physical problems specific to women, including skin problems, puffy faces, wrinkles, and menstrual difficulties. The next section is called "The Way To Inner Beauty" and includes instructions on meditation, visualization, and exercises for replacing bad habits with good habits.
The section on harmonizing internal and external beauty provides information on things like proper breathing techniques and spiritual practices.
Chen also includes appendices on specific beauty programs, including one called "The Fifty-Point Program for Beauty and Eternal Youth."
Each exercise is illustrated so that the instructions are clear. The exercises all have Chinese names, such as "Morning Dew as Smooth as Jade" for skin. Each name is accompanied by a full-page drawing of the Chinese character for that name.Read more ›
