Sutter sponsors qigong for arthritis workshop

By
From page A8 | April 11, 2013 |

The Chinese have an old adage: “The hinge that is used never needs oil.” So, too, our joints.

Both Western and Eastern medicine agree that if we want comfortable joints as we age we need to move and work them. Western research has confirmed that gentle Chinese exercise like qigong and tai chi can help prevent or address joint problems like arthritis.

On Sunday, April 21, from 1 to 4 p.m., Sutter Health will sponsor a workshop, “Qigong for Arthritis,” at the Davis Holistc Health Center, 1403 Fifth St. Participants will learn a short, seven-posture form designed by a contemporary qigong master in consultation with Chinese experts.

The form can be used to address joint problems or to prevent them and emphasizes work with the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders and knees. Both beginning and experienced students are welcome. Space is limited; the fee is $60.

Contact instructor Rebecca Pope for more information or to register. Pope, a certified master of medical qigong who has trained in both the United States and China, is a practitioner with Sutter Integrative Holistic Health. Reach her at qigongforheatlth@gnail.com or 530-792-7127.
