For patients with cancer and other serious illnesses, anxiety can be quite the problem. After all, how are you supposed to relax when you've recently been told you have a chronic disease? According to one holistic health expert, the trick to shaking off such tension is to use breathing-based ki energy healing.
Susan Ginsberg, who spends her days leading Chicago yoga classes, told the Sin-Times that she teaches people to breathe slowly and deeply as a way to reduce illness-related stress.
She explained that this method came to her in 2007 as a sort of revelation.
"I was a yoga teacher previously, and I started working with a woman that was going through cancer treatments," Ginsberg told the newspaper. "She had said something to me, that I was the angel on her shoulder during all of [her] treatments, helping her stop and breathe, and it stuck with me."
Since that time, she has helped dozens of critically ill people harness their ki energy in the service of relaxation.
Of course, you don't have to have a serious disease to be wracked by stress. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that 23 percent of Americans are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder during their lifetimes.
If you have a lot of tension, try attending a Dahn Yoga class in your corner of the Windy City! Even a single session can have you breathing a sigh of relief. Ahhhhhhhhhh…
