Strong Legs, Good Health
According to traditional Chinese medical wisdom you are only as old as your legs.
Chinese medical wisdom also says if you strengthen your legs you can slow down the affects of aging and stop certain health problems.
Naturally, there are many traditional Chinese exercises to strengthen your legs. These are done using your bodyweight only. Some are so easy anyone can do them, while others you may need to build up to.
The benefits of strong, flexible legs include:
1. Better support for your whole body
2. Better balance
3. Less chance of leg and lower back pain
Traditional Chinese leg exercises do more than this though. They stimulate important energy meridians in your legs and these meridians are linked to certain internal organs like your spleen, liver and kidneys.
Do the exercises and you benefit your legs AND your internal organs.
Exercise in the traditional Chinese sense also includes techniques like self-massage and acupressure. These techniques involve pressing and rubbing specific points and areas on your legs (and other body areas) to improve circulation, stop pain, increase flexibility and more.
There are two programs on the site showing you on video traditional Chinese exercises for the legs. There is the
Long Life Exercise Program
for overall better health and the
Knee Exercises Program
aimed specifically at the legs.
Any questions about these programs and the leg exercises let me know, I'll be happy to help.
