Moving or exercise, whatever you want to call it, improves many things. When we breathe, our lungs take in oxygen (which is food for our cells) and when we exhale, the lungs expel carbon dioxide.

Take a tour of other forms of movement from the exercise page on this website.                    HERE >>

Like Yoga and T’ai Chi there are different forms. However, they all share 1) either moving or static postures, 2) breathing techniques, and  3) mental focus. Through rhythmic movement, balance, and focused breathing one can direct healing energy (qi) to a certain body organ or area of pain. Qi Gong literally means “breath work,” cultivating energy through practice and promoting relaxation.

If you have concerns, discuss them with your physician. The ancient practices of the east can be used to compliment traditional medical care, not replace it. 

More about Yoga, T’ai Chi and Qi Gong can be found in all of our books.

We are fortunate to have founder of “International T’ai Chi Day,” and developer of the Kansas University “Stress Reduction Program,”  Bill Douglas write the following inside the cover review for Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Myofascial Pain: The Mind-Body Connection.

“This integrative holistic approach to these conditions is what is needed throughout medicine today. Empowering us to become part of our own health and healing process is such a powerful approach to these conditions or any others. I applaud the authors, and hope they inspire others to follow their lead.
