Practices in chinese therapy

Taichichuan, daoyin and Qigong are very popular disciplines also outside of China. The exercises have movement patterns and therapeutic effects that helps and complements every treatment. Taichichuan is a martial arts exercise, which means that the mind, body and life energy are trained. Daoyin combines breathing exercises with physical training and has been used as gymnastics to increase health for over two thousand years. Regular exercises lead to better blood and lymph circulation, regulation of nerve function, increased metabolism, improved functions of the tissues of sick organs and increased resilience. In qigong therapy breathing is key and using this, the practitioner can on a deep level consciously control the life energy.

Moxibustion

Closely linked to acupuncture is the so-called moxibustion. This means that the glowing moxa is placed on points on the skin to heat the blood and facilitate the flow of blood and energy and and a result strengthen the yang. Clinically moxibustion is used together with acupuncture.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture (“Zhen Jiu” in Chinese) is one of the most sophisticated systems of Chinese medicine. It involves the use of thin needles that are put on acupuncture points along the meridians to influence the body or the energy and blood flow.

Courses for musicians and dancers

Qigong is a valuable tool for musicians and dancers striving to optimally work with the body and breathing.

On the flute festival in Lund a few years ago, 40 flute players practised qigong and experienced the difference in sound quality before and after the exercises. According to Anders Ljungar-Chapelon, who arranged the event, the tone after the training was noticeably improved.

Today’s dancers seek out exercises that increase inner strength and balance. Therefore, they practice the disciplines taichichuan, aikido, kendo and qigong quite frequently.
Since the 90s, Patrick has taught at various dance schools in Milan, Munich, Lausanne (Maurice Béjart) and Paris.

Acupressure

Acupressure is used as a supplement or an alternative to acupuncture. The treatment involves pressing different parts of the body with fingers and hands and follows the meridians and acupuncture points’ system.

Entrepreneur?

At work, stress management is an important part of modern life.

The exercises we train have direct effect to calm down “shen”, ie, the brain activity.

Relaxation is achieved through regular work with “qi”, the energy of life.

As a business owner or employee, you can try to create a working environment where you and your colleagues are able to reduce stress and promote health.
