The new DVD from Scott Lee offers insight into this popular method of relaxation and injury prevention.

From Mr. Lee's website:

What is Qi Gong?

Besides being a healthy art, Qi Gong is a collective name for specific Chinese forms or exercises.

Qi (or Chi, pronounced “chee”) is the Life energy that flows through all living things.

Gong means work or discipline.

So, Qi Gong is the practice of learning about the flow of that energy throughout the body…

It is movement and meditation

The exercises (which can be done in the small space where you are standing) gently stretch the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and massage the internal organs. The forms are elegant and simple and help teach us about inward awareness. Their practice is suitable for any age and almost any physical condition.

Can You Benefit from Qi Gong?

Most musicians experience difficulties in their playing at one time or another. The common problems we face usually fall into these following areas:
Practice issues: Too often, our practice time is not focused or thorough: it can be avoidance, a bad attitude, or just not knowing how to concentrate and use the time well.
Performance anxieties: Many musicians experience the fear of playing poorly, or disappointing oneself and others by not performing up to certain standards.
Physical problems: From repetitive stress syndrome to the random and/or chronic numbness, ache or pain, every musician will eventually encounter these difficulties and need a remedy.
Creative blocks: Being able to bring out what you already know and expressing your own musical history and personality is frustrating at best. Finding your own voice and staying strong in your unique way of playing should be a constant goal.
Inconsistent improvement: Maintaining an enthusiasm for learning as much as possible is the path to improvement.
