Simple Qigong Exercises—for Back Pain Relief
For centuries, the Chinese have healed and strengthened their bodies with Qigong (chee-kung), the art of using the mind to direct the energy within your body to improve health and vitality. This program gives an introduction to the general concepts of qigong, and explains keypoints for correct practice, such as the 'Five Regulatings'.
Dr. Yang then presents ten gentle qigong exercises to help ease your lower back pain, strengthen your torso, and expedite your body’s natural healing. The exercises are simple to learn and enjoyable to practice, and you can easily follow along with Dr. Yang's demonstration. The movements can be practiced both sitting or standing.
In the second half of the program, Dr. Yang offers pain-relieving massage techniques for yourself and with a partner, and shows important pressure points, or acupuncture cavities. A complete self-massage section is included which you may follow along to.
This DVD complements the book "Back Pain Relief" by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming. (sold separately)

Absolutely FABULOUS! July 2012 By Cobe (Amazon reviewer)
After having suffered from back problems for over 20 years, I decided to give QiGong a try... Then proceeded to buy almost ALL DVDs by Dr Yang. Practicing QiGong and these particular back pain movements is the BEST thing I have EVER done for my physical well being.Most Beneficial Self Healing Video Ever, D.L. Hoffman (Amazon reviewer) November, 2007
I have been practicing QiGong for about 2 years, but it took me only one or two weeks to completely get rid of pain I had on my upper left arm. The best part is that I have completely got rid of my lower back pain. I used to get back pain when I had to stand for over 15 or 20 minutes preparing foods in the kitchen. I also had problems with my right ankle, those are also completely gone.
Before QiGong, the simple action of leaning slightly over in order to cut veggies or prepare a meal, was enough for me to get lower back pain. I had to sit down for a while in order to be able to be able to continue doing whatever I was doing. Sitting at the computer always gave me neck and lower back pain, but thanks to QIGONG, all those problems belong to the past.
If you are a non-believer, all I can say is get this DVD (or the one for Arthritis, which is also wonderful), practice these very easy movements for a few weeks and you will start seeing the results. Even if your pain is very bad, you will experience great improvement. All you need to do is practice every day in complete relaxation. Just a few minutes a day doing these extremely easy movements will help you get over your pain, whether caused by rheumatism or by arthritis. You will also become a believer. Do it and enjoy a new life without pain and, what's more, without dangerous pain killers.
Thank you Dr Yang for all your wonderful QIGONG DVDs. I have learned a lot from them and I will continue practicing different QiGong movements for as long as I live.
I enjoy the simplicity and depth in this profound transformative formula. It gives you the mental and physical tools to produce real change in your body and mind...after 2 weeks my tai chi and computer programming have improved and that's just the start - there's a saying that "you are as young as your back" - if in doubt, buy this product and take the principles to heart. The combination of mind-body exercise with self-massage is a great formula. Best of luck on your healing/strengthening journey.
