Traditional Chinese medicine is by no means limited to herbal medication and acupuncture; its many branches of therapeutic methods include exercise therapies such as qigong and massage, which have an even longer history than medication. They were not only recorded in medical literature, but have also been handed down and widely disseminated among the Chinese as self-health care measures because of their simplicity and effectiveness. In this book, the editor has selected only a limited portion of these measures.

Most of the diseases that can be prevented and treated by these measures are "minor" problems, not so serious as cancers and cardiovascular seizures. However, these "minor" problems are so common that they cause great suffering and enormous economic loss if the whole community is considered. "Health for all by the year 2000," advocated by the World Health Organization, is becoming the common goal of people all over the world. One of the fundamental approaches to meeting this goal is the participation of people at the community level; they need to have easy access to simple methods that will improve their health. This collection of health care measures can partly meet this requirement.
