SEATED TAI CHI & QIGONG Cynthia W Quarta
Practising Taiji and Qigong is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life and a great way to stay healthy. But what if you suffer from limited mobility? Can you still benefit? Well now you can with the help of this book, which is written for both you and your carers. Covering everything caregivers and patients need to know about Taiji and Qigong, this illustrated guide provides an explanatory introduction to these forms of exercises and shows how to build up a program from easy steps to more challenging ones. There are exercises to stimulate every part of the body, with variations to suit the patient's needs and preferences. All the movements are adapted from the same ancient principles guiding classic Taiji and Qigong and will help strengthen the body as well as provide contemplative relaxation. If you have physical disabilities or are elderly, or if you are a therapist, this book will show you exactly how these simple techniques can make big improvements to a person's physical and mental wellbeing.
