THE ESSENTIALS OF QIGONG
The Ancient Chinese Way to Better Health
This classic video by Dr. Roger Jahnke is a wonderful introduction to ancient and remarkable Qigong fundamental methods. Roger Jahnke, OMD, a pioneering author and Doctor of Chinese Medicine in America, guides you through this video lesson, part documentary and part demonstration, with beautiful scenes from his many research trips to China.
The ancient art of Qi-gong, or energy-work, is a powerful practice that goes beyond just movement or exercise, affecting your cellular potential for energetic healing and increased vitality. This easy combination of breathwork, gentle body movement, and meditation activates your 'healer within' to produce inner elixirs of improved chemistry. You'll experience better circulation of blood, nutrition, oxygen and energy and profound improvements in your supply of "feel good" neurotransmitters.
Dr. Jahnke introduces four amazing yet simple Qigong methods, demonstrating Qigong methods discussed in his groundbreaking book The Healer Within:
Effects of Qigong on health, disease and stress
Guo Lin's cancer recovery and prevention Qigong
The Shaolin Spiritual Warrior Qi Strengthening method
The Vitality Method of Medical Qigong
The Effect of Qigong on Modern Heathcare
Qigong Essentials is a meditative practice that helps stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system and up-regulate your immune system so your body can heal itself. Once you learn the forms from these video demonstrations, it is recommend you practice outdoors in the fresh air when possible.
This program pairs well with Dr. Roger's practice-oriented program Qigong – Awakening and Mastering the Medicine Within (coming Feb 22).
