Simple Chi Kung exercises

Chi Kung exercises are simple yet believed to be amazingly effective in terms of their ability to bring harmony and balance to the body. It can be difficult for us to appreciate that such simple movements can make a difference if you are schooled in ideas of ‘no pain no gain’ or ‘feel the burn’. This is in direct opposition to the Chinese approach, with its emphasis on generating and conserving energy. A friend who visited one of the main hospitals in Shanghai where Eastern and Western medicine are used alongside each other came back talking about how it was usual for doctors to prescribe Chi Kung exercises along with the kind of medicine we might be more familiar with. The great thing about this video is that you can learn a bit about it and try it for yourself.
