Ultimately we are all responsible for our own health, and one of the practices I often recommend to my clients to help improve their health and wellbeing is that of Qi Gong (pronounced Chee Gong). This is an ancient practice with is similar to Tai Chi in that it is a series of slow movements working with the breath, but is designed to activate and improve the Circulation of our Qi (chi or Ki) which we work with in Shiatsu. By bringing this practice into your daily or weekly routine, you are nourishing and supporting your body's inbuilt system, as we do in Shiatsu, building health, wellbeing and resilience.
I often show clients a few simple Qi Gong exercises, but nothing beats an actual class! For clients in Bristol I would recommend taking a look at this website www.qigong-bristol.co.uk which list local practitioners and classes available. and also explains a little about Qi Gong and some of the benefits!If you can't make a class, you can find heaps of instructional videos on the internet too. Why not give it a go and see how you feel?!
Maybe see you there!!
