What is Daoyin?
Daoyin is simply a form of physical therapy that is grounded in Traditional Chinese Medicine and can involve exercises of the body and the mind. The word literally means “to lead and guide” and was inspired by an ancient Chinese silk painting that was dated to 200 B.C. and depicts various postures and exercises that were performed for the maintenance of good health and physical flexibility.
Why combine Acupuncture Treatments with Daoyin?
The combination of Acupuncture and Daoyin therapy is most effective as acupuncture helps to clear blockages in qi and blood while Daoyin helps the body adjust the flow in the affected areas and restore its structural position and function.
“Exercise is the key not only to the physical health but to the peace of mind.”
