Doctor's orders: Qi Gong
I had to get a new doctor due to my move. I was pretty thrilled that I had several options at my new doctor's office. The lady I picked is a MD, OB, and Acupuncturist. While I have never even considered acupuncture before, I suspected that she would be more whole body health centered than just the throw medicine at a problem type of doctor.
And, I was entirely right. I've been having a lot of health and pain problems recently. While she is getting me some blood work and has given me quite a few diet suggestions. She also highly recommended QiGong to help with my pain issues and lose weight. She said it would work "magic" in decreasing my stress levels as well. And, that little bit sold me on at least giving it a shot.
She suggested that I try Qi Gong for Low Back Pain with Lee Holden and 7 Minutes of Magic - AM & PM Routines with Lee Holden.
While those are on order I've been trying to do a few moves I've found on YouTube. I always feel silly doing yoga-like moves. But, I can't deny how much better I feel afterwards.
What is your favorite type of low-impact exercise? Have you done types of yoga before? What about acupuncture?
I'll most likely let you all know how Qi Gong goes for me as time moves on. Here is hoping for the best!
