Chi is the Chinese word for energy. Energy has both positive and negative qualities. When a person meditates on their body, they may learn to transform negative, harmful energy into positive, healthy vital energy.
Meditation is like praying except it is a non-denominational activity. A person who spends a few moments focusing their mind on a specific outcome is meditating. If a person sends a message to their body repeatedly, the body will ultimately respond in kind. That is why guided meditation for health can be so transforming.
Once a person is old enough to have a thought, they are old enough to facilitate bio-chemical responses within their body. It is best to teach children they have choices and some control of their physical and emotional energy right away. To avoid infant illness, an infant can have energy moved for them by a family member or trusted friend.
Chi means energy, Kung means work. Chi Kung is energy work. We refer to Chi Kung for physical health here. It is believed by many that stuck Chi is what causes illness. Chi Kung teaches a person to cultivate, refine and circulate Chi to facilitate good health.
Yes. Again, YES! We have one body for the entirety of our life. If we poison it daily, it will start to break down prematurely. Alternately, if a person feeds their body with healthy, chemical free, sugar free, nutritious food, not only could life be extended, but also the quality of that life is immeasurably improved. In some cultures, food is used as medicine because it is that powerful.
Simple, be a pro-active parent. Set an example. Children mimic what they see. Turn off the TV and spend some time with your kids. Make health fun. Go to a family Yoga class together. Cook healthy meals together. Take the garbage food OUT OF THE HOUSE. You trained them, you can re-train them!
Yes. Be sure an adult checks out the practitioner first. A good Chiropractor will help your child keep their Chi flowing freely by keeping their hips, shoulders and spine straight.
