The Cohesion of Movement and Breath: Creating harmony for self- healing
Alex Blank, PT, DPT, CFMT

July 12, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

This webinar is designed to help the viewer understand how combining simple movements and breath practices can empower patients to actively engage in their healing journey. Learn and experience how the ancient practice of Qi Gong provides an accessible bridge between complex physiology and an internal state of clarity, emotional equanimity, and self- healing.

Learning objectives :

  1. A review on the body’s natural stress response and its impact on our ability to heal
  2. An exploration of the physiological mechanisms associated with breathing and movement, highlighting how their combination can enhance the body’s innate self-healing abilities
  3. A discovery of how the simple practice of Qi Gong can effectively complement a patient’s care plan. This can lead to improved reception of parallel interventions within collaborative care
