Brocade 4 – Looking Behind to Cure Fatigue and Distress



Revitalizing Your Life Energy (Qi) Through Motion – Series


From Qigong stance, move arms so that they are resting naturally alongside the body, palms are downward, fingers lifted slightly.

Inhale and slowly turn to one side as you exhale, make sure your gaze follows the movement. Inhale coming back to the center, and exhale as you turn to the other side.

Finish with clearing by going to Qigong position.

Modification: Squeeze your shoulder blades toward your spine as you turn, getting an extra stretch in the chest and shoulders.

This brocade is also called the “Five Fatigues & Seven Illnesses” and releases chronic tension in the neck and shoulder muscles and improves posture. It also stimulates cerebral blood circulation which can reduce fatigue and fine-tune intuition.

Never having settled long enough on a career or life path, Elsa discovered Martial Arts and it transformed her life. The tenets of martial arts instilled in her the discipline, dedication, and perseverance that ultimately led her to become an International and National Martial Arts Champion.

Years later when she left the martial arts industry in search of a new and meaningful career, she discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine, first as a patient battling digestive and women’s issues, and later as a student.

From the beginning, she embraced a holistic approach to medicine along with traditional healing methods, and today she is a Board Certified Acupuncturist and Herbalist. A natural born teacher she now wants to share her passion and knowledge with others!
