Chi Kung for Health

Chi Kung is an ancient system of exercises, and a very economical way to stay healthy. These powerful exercises have been used for thousands of years and are very effective for treating a wide range of health problems. Chi Kung makes your body strong so it can ward off illness— and it feels good.

Practicing Chi Kung promotes higher levels of energy and stamina, and when combined with proper diet and nutrition, slows down the aging process.

Learning Chi Kung at BIOM
At BIOM, our focus is on using Chi Kung to develop and maintain the health and strength needed to meet the challenges that meet us everyday. We teach, practice, and enjoy two types of Chi Kung at BIOM: Chi Kung for Health and Iron Shirt Chi Kung, which are offered to you in classes or private sessions.

Regardless of which approach you take you will gradually find yourself enjoying higher levels of energy, stamina, and strength, as you improve your overall sense of health and well-being.

Some Chi Kung each day, keeps the doctor away.

So take a few deep breaths and head over to Beginning Chi Kung in the BIOM photogallery to get a sense of what it’s like to begin doing Chi Kung at BIOM.

5 Element Weight Loss

You can go on a diet, eat less food, and exercise more, and you won’t necessarily lose weight if your digestive system is not working properly. In fact, you may find yourself becoming more unhealthy because you’re getting less nourishment. As a result, a “healthy” weight loss program needs to take into account your unique physicality.

5 Element Weight loss at BIOM is a unique and healthy opportunity to develop a weight loss program based on your special situation—designed and aimed at the outcome you’re looking for—a healthy body and self image.

The Focus
BIOM’s 5 Element approach to loosing weight focuses first on addressing any imbalances you may have in your internal organs. Often, the simple process of balancing the energy (Chi) of the internal organs improves digestion, which enables better metabolism and peristalsis so food doesn’t get trapped in your body. 

The Five Element Weight Loss Method
The Five Element method includes:

  • Principles of a healthy diet.
  • Chi Kung exercises.
  • Acupressure/acupuncture, and Chinese medical herbs (optional).

5 Element Diet and Nutrition

Diet and nutrition is so important for your health and well-being because it’s a primary way for getting the energy (chi) you need to live.

Getting The Chi You Need
You’re born with a certain amount of chi that you inherit from your parents; you get a constant supply of chi from the air you breathe; and you need a constant source of chi from the food you eat. When you eat food that doesn’t have the proper nutritive value, your health gradually diminishes; when you eat a diet that’s balanced, based on the 5 Element Theory of Oriental Medicine, your health flourishes.

Eating Your Way To Health
Nutritionally balanced meals, prepared according to recipes based on 5 Element Diet and Nutrition are nature’s pharmaceuticals. These medicinal recipes—many of which are similar to the delicious dishes you enjoy at your favorite Chinese restaurant—provide the chi and nutrients you need to improve and maintain your health, and are often prescribed as part of your treatment plan at BIOM.

Imagine a prescription to treat yourself to some delicious, healthy and balanced Asian cuisine. At BIOM, we believe that getting and being healthy includes having fun and enjoying yourself along the Way.

Important: 5 Element-based recipes also complement Western medical treatments by addressing adverse side effects caused by drugs. If you’re currently ill, or recovering from sickness, these foods will help you recuperate, rejuvenate, and regain your vitality.
