During the Qigong discussion on theory and history, which begins the DVD, Master Yang is shown practicing the various Qigong exercises. This is a good use of time, as it allows the viewer to immediately begin to follow along with appropriate movements. Explanations are provided about the differences between and benefits of Soft Qigong, Soft Hard Qigong and Hard Qigong.
This DVD has particular significance for me, as I suffered a severe back injury in the early 70's. I was told at the time that I would be partially disabled for life. Well, that's not what I wanted to hear. This injury, and its subsequent effect on my body, led me to begin learning Taijiquan in the late 70's. I then became intrigued with the health and martial aspects of Taijiquan, and as healthy as my back is now, it's easy to forget the original reason that I began my studies.
Although I was able to heal my back, I still on occasion get lower back pain. The first student to whom I began teaching Taijiquan is now a chiropractor. He gets frustrated at times because I never use him for any treatment on my back. Usually Taiji practice or very relaxed stretching is able to bring my lower back to a healthy condition.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Master Yang bending at the waist and as his hands hung down to the ground he began slowly wiggling his waist/back area to allow further stretching.Read more ›
I have been practicing QiGong for about 2 years, but it took me only one or two weeks to completely get rid of pain I had on my upper left arm. The best part is that I have completely got rid of my lower back pain. I used to get back pain when I had to stand for over 15 or 20 minutes preparing foods in the kitchen. I also had problems with my right ankle, those are also completely gone.
Before QiGong, the simple action of leaning slightly over in order to cut veggies or prepare a meal, was enough for me to get lower back pain. I had to sit down for a while in order to be able to be able to continue doing whatever I was doing. Sitting at the computer always gave me neck and lower back pain, but thanks to QIGONG, all those problems belong to the past.
If you are a non believer, all I can say is get this DVD (or the one for Arthritis, which is also wonderful), practice these very easy movements for a few weeks and you will start seeing the results. Even if your pain is very bad, you will experience great improvement. All you need to do is practice every day in complete relaxation. Just a few minutes a day doing these extremely easy movements will help you get over your pain, whether caused by rheumatism or by arthritis. You will also become a believer. Do it and enjoy a new life without pain and, what's more, without dangerous pain killers.
Thank you Dr Yang for all your wonderful QIGONG DVDs. I have learned a lot from them and I will continue practicing different QiGong movements for as long as I live.
