CHI KUNG FOR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT with Dr. Carlos de León.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), overweight is generally regarded as a sign that imbalances exist in the body. In TCM, which sees health in terms of balance and functionality, body fat is viewed as the result of accumulated “phlegm” and “internal-dampness pathogens”. To fight fat effectively, therefore, the emphasis is placed on clearing and transforming phlegm and internal dampness to restore the balance.
CHI KUNG FOR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT supports not only a healthy weight, but health overall through detoxification and improvements in energy. This one-day workshop offers each practitioner a greater understanding of a path that provides effective ways to maintain life force energy, deeper awareness around the functions of our bodies, and the possibility of achieving more harmony and inner peace.

Explore ways to develop and expand your sensitivity to the universal flow of Chi;

Develop better health by strengthening your vital energy system, calming your mind, and strengthening your nervous system;
