Mind-Body Exercise Therapy

 

Our mind is connected to our body through energy. We need to maintain harmony and balance between mind and body to prevent disease and achieve better health. When there is a disconnection or dysfunction, sickness and disorders ensue.

Many ancient cultures have various forms of mind body exercises. The most popular mind-body exercise in Oriental medicine is QiGong (pronounced Chee-Gong). Qi means energy, Gong means skill that is developed with time. QiGong uses breath-work, meditation, vocalization, stretching of energetic pathways, tapping acupuncture points and movement therapy to circulate Qi-energy and bridge the mind and body.

There are many more other types of mind body exercise techniques. Some examples of them are TaiJiQuan (pronounced Tai-Ji-Chuan), Yoga and various type of martial arts. The regular practice of a mind body exercise helps to regulate the body to prevent disease or regulate the body in a disharmonized state. It is important to maintain the body and mind holistically to complete overall well being.
