Here is the website. Also the book. The 5th (most recent) edition appears to be in Kindle but not in paperback on Amazon. It is here on Barnes and Noble.
I've given this info to a number of friends with rotator cuff injuries and they say they've benefited. The author was able to get back to very vigorous tennis after a severe rotator cuff injury, without ever having surgery. He said that the shoulder surgery part of his practice dropped to near zero after he started prescribing these exercises for his patients.
Hi Julie G. Hope you will come and half-flap!
In the case of injury like yours some important Qigong principles apply.
Movement is gentle, and always within the range that is comfortable for the individual at that moment. How the movement is done...ie how far the arms might spread to the side or how high an arm is raised....is less important than working with the flow of energy. In your case, this would be sending your intention that energy flow out through your shoulder and your arm to your finger tips and thinking/ visualizing/intending lifting the arm even if you do not move it at all. You focus your attention and activate your will that the energy to flow.
It might be interesting to try as long as you make sure you do not push physically in any way.
