Diabetes is an imbalance in the production of insulin which is secreted by the pancreas. The imbalance causes the blood sugar level (the level of blood sugar in the bloodstream) and the urea sugar level to elevate. This disorder can lead to cardiovascular disease, chronic renal failure (leading to dialysis), retinal failure (leading to blindness), nerve damage and poor healing capacity, which can lead to gangrene and amputation.
Qi Gong For Diabetes is a system that combines Qi Gong with acupressure massage at specific meridians to prevent diabetes or help people who suffer from diabetes. You will learn acupressure points that enhance the production of insulin. Learn a set of points to improve the function of the pancreas by increasing blood circulation. Learn to activate your Yin meridians to improve ventricle blood flow back to your heart. This also helps the absorption of sugar by cells through increased usage of sugar.
Qi Gong For Diabetes combines elements from Dragon Door Qi Gong, Chen Style Qi Gong, Wu Dang Qi Gong, 8 Pieces of Brocade and Wild Goose Qi Gong.
DVD’s and CD’s will be available for purchase at the workshop. Please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing.
This is the fourth of four seasonal workshops in Qi Gong and Tai Chi for 2008.
