We are in the middle of a cultural revolution in the health care industry. Nearly eight thousand people practice Traditional Chinese Medicine in the US and thirty-five states currently offer some form of legal status for its practice. Many people are seeking alternatives to the Western, medical approach to health care. To these seekers, Voices of Qi is an invaluable aid in exploring what Traditional Chinese Medicine has to offer. Alex Holland has done an admirable job of presenting the basic tenets and practices to this ancient tradition in a clear, concise and accessible manner.
