Chinese Healing Exercises is ideal for those looking for help or guidance in improving their physical health, emotional well-being and mental focus - but are looking for alternatives beyond conventional gym and exercise programs and Western medical intervention.
Making time to learn qigong to a level at which it provides real health benefits can be extremely challenging for someone laboring under the typical time constraints of modern living.
The beauty of the simple yet versatile and comprehensive Chinese self-care exercise system is that anyone can reap its health benefits in very little time. They are easily learned and gentle enough to be practiced by anyone regardless of age, gender, level of fitness and state of health. The stated goal of each exercise can be gained by a daily practice of as little as one or two minutes!
Exercises don't require much space, or any special equipment, and while some personal instruction is always helpful, you don't need to go to a gym, yoga studio, dojo or ashram to learn or practice them.
Chinese self-care exercises can help build muscle strength, flexibility or aerobic fitness, while further building health and longevity, by increasing the openness and functionality of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, the spine and nerves, internal and sense organs, glands and meridian pathways. As the basis for a daily exercise program, you can use them to improve your general health safely and effectively, and enhance your overall well-being. You can select only the exercises which appeal to you, and from their practice get the full benefits without requiring a longer course of sequential study and practice.
Exercises may be selected to work on a specific health challenge, to reduce pain, to get through your day with more energy and vitality, or to extend the healthy years of your life while minimizing and even reversing many signs of aging. They can be used by athletes and martial artists as warm-up exercises to increase fitness levels, improve performance, reduce the likelihood of injury and speed recovery should injury occur. Health care professionals can use them for their own self-care, to prevent occupational burn-out, and to teach to those clients and patients who may want to take a more active role in their personal fitness and health care.
