Yoga for MS and Related Conditions (DVD) by Shoosh Crotzer.
This video is very powerful, and very effective for relieving the spasticity that effects people with MS. It is also highly recommended for relieving the low back pain which plagues many, and it is effective in helping strengthen the hamstring muscles which are so important for those of with leg weakness. This video is based totally on Hatha yoga, which has been adapted and modified for limited mobility, and is mostly a floor or seated routine. Instructions are given for an assistant when one is needed. I cannot recommend this routine too highly. ORDER BELOW
Chi for Seniors (DVD) —Self Healing
Through Movement (based on Qi
ITEM NO LONGER AVAILABLE.)
Mark has taught Qi Gong (chee kung) and Tai Chi, integrating them creatively for over 25 years. Mark was trained in China and Taiwan and is a Tao master and healer as well.
This program is divided into four segments. First, warm-up (simple loosening of the joints and gentle stretching) exercises, second are specific and very simple QiGong healing movements. Third the video features acupressure and self-massage, with specific simple techniques for strengthening the immune system, for arthritis, headaches and high blood pressure, for stimulating the entire neurological system, increasing memory etc. The fourth section of the video is a 4-minute simple QiGong Tai Chi "form," which uses only 10 easy movements.
A friend gifted me with my first copy of this program, about 19 years ago, and by learning to work with Mark's simple, easy-to-learn Qi Gong movements I first made the connection between simple deep breathing and stretching exercises and halting the progression of MS.
Even though initially designed for those 60 years and older, this program is quite basic and very easy for anyone, especially those with limited mobility. ORDER BELOW
Healer Within (book)
I am so excited about the self-healing techniques taught in The Healer Within.
While nothing in this book is a magic bullet that will miraculously make your MS go away, I can unequivocally guarantee that if you will do these very easy-to-follow techniques, you will improve the quality of your life while aiding your body’s efforts at self-healing.
This book uses the traditional natural Chinese medicine techniques of:
Gentle Movement ● Self-Applied Massage ● Deep Breathing Exercises ● Meditation
All the techniques taught in The Healer Within are drawn from the ancient Chinese healing system of Qi Gong (Chi Kung). Each technique is accompanied by how-to sketches, and all may be done either sitting, standing or lying down, so there is no one who cannot do them, whatever your level of disability. And each simple exercise is accompanied by easy-to-follow sketches. The best part is the very first few minutes you will experience a rush of energy and you will know without doubt that they are having a beneficial effect on your body.
Right now, as you read this, with open palms, vigorously massage your entire head and ears for a couple of minutes. Come on...please don’t read on until you do this little exercise. For at least a full minute vigorously massage your entire head and especially your ears. Feel the rush of energy throughout your body. This is just a tiny preview of how the self-massage makes your entire body feel alive and energized.
