Eight Treasures Medical Qigong
Eight Treasures Medical Qigong is very simple and very powerful -an excellent well-balanced form for your whole body. It strengthens the joints and adds flexibility to the whole body. The Eight Treasures form works with all the organs and the emotions, releasing and balancing the body, mind, and Spirit. Eight Treasures Medical Qigong regulates the Triple Heater (the heating and cooling system in the body); strengthens the lung energy; harmonizes the stomach and spleen; extinguishes fire in the heart; purifies the energy of the liver; balances the seven emotions; strengthens energy of the kidneys; and maintains good health.
Jade Woman Medical Qigong
The Jade Woman Medical Qigong form opens your heart and circulation to your body; opens the lungs to connect to the heart and liver; pulls the bladder up to help control bladder leakage; builds strength in the pelvic floor; builds and sweeps the chi into the heart; awakens and connects the liver; detoxifies the body and reduces weight; removes murky chi from the body which cultivates new cells; cleanses the whole body blood system and fills the body with pure Chi.
Don't just sit there and struggle to meditate!!! Do Mindful Meditation and get the same benefits without beating yourself up because your monkey mind won't leave you alone. Mindful Meditation helps reduce stress, helps control pain and fatigue, helps sustain focus, regulates emotions, attention, self-awareness, depression, and anxiety. Increases compassion for others, and helps with sleep.
Mindful Meditation brings Healing Love and a Healing Smile to your whole body for peace, comfort, and nurturing love for yourself and others by transforming negative Chi to positive Chi in the body and mind.
