      Medical Qigong: Ba Duan Jin

      William J. Kaplanidis, LAc, MS, MA

      The Ba Duan Jin (“Eight pieces of brocade”) is a Taoist medical qigong set of eight therapeutic practices that dates back over 1,000 years. Over the centuries, many have experienced its numerous health benefits, and it is one of the most famous of all qigong forms. There are several variations of each exercise that combine gentle movements with breath coordination, and they can be easily modified for people of varying fitness levels.

      In addition to increasing strength and flexibility and improving posture, this set can provide benefits to the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive and lymphatic systems. The practices are relatively simple to learn, and one begins to feel their subtle, yet profound benefits after only a few weeks of practice. You will feel energized, yet calm and balanced after each of the sessions.

      Note: Wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement and flat-soled shoes.
