Yang Sheng: The art of Chinese Self Healing
Lead a calmer and more balanced life with Yang Sheng
Yang Sheng may be the most important concept in Chinese medicine. It directly translates as ‘nourish life’ and is a self-healing system of simple treatments that puts you in the driving seat of your health.
In this book Katie Brindle, founder of The Hayo’u Method, will share with you the profound techniques to nurture your body, mind and spirit. From dull skin to anxiety and stress, you’ll discover new and effective habits to support your wellbeing in just a few minutes a day.

It’s something you can do yourself, with just small changes that can be breathtakingly effective.” – Katie Brindle
