Qi Gong (Qigong, Chi Kung) Videos
  • Qigong for Health - by Dr. Paul Lam. 60-minute tape starts with an introduction covering the history of qigong and breathing techniques, followed with a a thorough warm-up for the entire body (you need a chair to assist with balance.). Then is goes on to preparation and a review of body alignment followed by the postures and the movements. Includes tips for relaxing and cleansing the mind, breathing from the diaphragm, and aligning the posture. It ends with winding-down exercises to loosen the body and "wash your qi." The warm up, the Qi Gong routine and then winding down exercises can all be done in less than 15 minutes. The tape also includes are individual comments from students speaking about their own health benefit experiences from Qi Gong including: improved sleep, reduced stress, improved health, clarity and tranquility.
  • Anthology T'ai Chi & Qigong: The Prescription for the Future - (Volumes 1, 2 and 3) by Bill Douglas, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi and QiGong. "I... encourage you to read my book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong" for a comprehensive look at Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In TCM it is understood that when one understands and "believes" in the therapy, such as T'ai Chi & Qigong, the healing benefits are magnified by that understanding. Then when you use the videos or audios (see Qigong: Relaxation Therapy, Qigong: Expanding Awareness, Qigong: Earth Cleansing) your left brain, or analytical mind, can relax and allow the right brain, or sensory/sensual mind, to enjoy the pleasant experiences the videos and audios take you through. This left brain / right brain approach that the book and videos combine to create is the hallmark of my SMARTaichi program. As you see by the testimonials in the front of my book, written by a surgeon, a pharmacologist, a neurologist, a psychologist, a physical therapist, and an ER physician, this program can be a powerful tool in your life as it releases the modern stress now becoming a greater issue for all of us. These tools will expand our creativity and health, if you use them. Practice these tools as often as you can (daily or twice daily if possible), not because they do wonderful things for you (which they do), but do them because they "feel good" and are "fun." FUN is at the core of my teaching. If you enjoy Tai Chi & Qigong, then you will use them more and more . . .because we all like to have fun. ENJOY! " Bill Douglas
