Product Description

In China, the ancient art of Qigong has been practiced for centuries to relieve, heal, and prevent arthritis. "Qigong" means energy work', and it is the practice of using the mind to naturally develop and circulate the body s Qi energy for improved health, vitality, and longevity. In this program, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming and senior student Ramel Rones demonstrate over 30 simple and effective qigong exercises to relieve arthritis pain and rebuild the health and flexibility of your joints. These qigong movements gradually recondition the joints, and they're a natural way to heal and prevent arthritis. Most of the exercises can be practiced in either a seated or standing position. Also included are simple qigong massage instructions for specific pressure points, which can be practiced by yourself or with a partner. This acupressure massage works to alleviate arthritis by increasing circulation of blood and Qi, which stimulates healing. The exercises and massage techniques on this DVD are categorized by body part, so you may easily find the technique to relieve your own arthritis in just a couple of clicks. This program is a must for Qigong students, teachers, and those interested in preventing and healing arthritis naturally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Qigong for Arthritis and improving one's health December 9, 2007
This is an excellent DVD for dealing with arthritis. Additionally, even if one does not suffer the effects of arthritis, the exercises on this DVD will still maintain one's health and possibly prevent the onset of arthritis.

Locally, there is a Taijiquan group called the Taijiquan Tutelage of Palo Alto, CA. The former leader/main consultant of the group was Wu Ta-yeh. He studied under Tung, Hu-ling, who was the son of Tung, Ying-chieh. Tung, Ying-chieh was the main student of Yang Cheng Fu in the last twenty years of Yang's life.

Allegedly, Wu Ta-yeh suffered from an arthritic condition in his forties which prevented him from being able to hold a pen and sign his name. He learned Taijiquan and lived into his late eighties. According to his biography on the organization's home page, he rarely suffered any medical problems, including arthritis, for the last thirty years or so of his life.

In my own family my mother has suffered arthritic pain in her hands. After using the Qigong balls, so commonly found in any Chinese community, she was able to alleviate the pain and suffering from arthritis. The balls are usually metal and two of them are rolled around the palm of the hand, causing one to focus on the hands while attempting to roll them around each other.

By focusing on the hand and doing a non-load bearing exercise incorporating circular movements and coordination, Qi is directed to the area, allowing the body to heal itself. As I was watching this DVD I was not surprised to see Master Yang using these Chinese balls to demonstrate an exercise. They are very effective and low in cost.

Approximately a year ago I apparently had appendicitis for eight days, prior to having an operation to remove my appendix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for rehab May 13, 2009
By J. Barr
YMAA has asked me to review this DVD based on my almost 30 years in the martial arts. I have to admitt to being happy about snagging this assignment for selfish reasons. I had knee surgery and knew I would be limited in what I'd be able to do for a while. So I thought this would be a great time to branch out in my kiko (chinese qigong) practice. The exercises are perfect for someone who needs to keep their joints loose and supple. If you have arthritis I would check with you doctor before doing any of the exercises just as a general warning. Like all qigong exercises these look easy but they are challenging at their own level. If you are a beginner and have never done qigong before then this is a good place to start. There's lots of explanation and you can see the moves easily.

Another person says that the DVD drags and is too long before you "get to the meat". I can only say that if you slow down you'll get a more harmonious outcome. The DVD tries to slow down a persons pace as they enter into qigong practice. If you are in a hurry qigong is not for you. If after a few times you recognize an exercise and feel comfortable with it you can always press the magical fast forward button.

I personally found this quite beneficial after my knee surgery...that is after I got to the stage where unadded standing was allowed. It got the juices flowing again and prepped me for more rigourous physcial training. If you are interested in a more general simple qigong practice get Dr. Yang's "Simple 8 Brocade" DVD. I've been practicing it for years but I still learned a lot from it.

Having a background in Tae Kwon Do and Karate, I am always a little bit apprehensive when I review a book or DVD on a softer style of martial art or technique in fear that I won't be able to give the respective product a full, informed, and complete review of the material it provides.

However, after reviewing numerous products that fit that particular criteria, I have alleviated myself of all self-doubt in this matter as I have realized that, although it may not be directly associated with the martial arts that I am intimately familiar with, there is still a wealth of information to be had and in most cases can be adapted to your chosen art with little to no alteration of the technique needed in order to adapt it to your own particular uses.

Okay, now that I've got that out of the way, on with the review.

This DVD is simple, informative and most of all, very well done. There are no special effects or any other nonsensical things in this DVD to take away from the high quality of instruction that is presented by the martial artist demonstrating these very simple, yet effective techniques. Now one doesn't have to be a sufferer of arthritis to enjoy the wonderful benefits of a regular routine of performing the exercises shown in this video.

All you need to do is sit down and watch this video one or even two times all the way through just relaxing in a chair to start with. Once you have done that, then simply start back at the beginning and just take one or maybe two exercises at a time and slowly perform them until you feel comfortable with them. Then simply add one more at a time until you have a complete workout.
