Qigong is the centuries-old practice of moving vital energy (Qi) through the channels of the body, known as meridians, to achieve vitality and health. Research has shown that Qigong practice can support cognitive functioning, as well as emotional and physical wellbeing, in people with dementia. Guided by the teachings of Grandmaster of the Natural Healing Research Foundation, Stephen Rath presents a set of accessible Qigong exercises and breathing techniques adapted specifically for older people who may be frail or have limited mobility, and to address specific symptoms associated with dementia. These include exercises for the hands and feet, exercises for releasing emotions through the Five Animal Sounds, seated exercises, and facial exercises. The exercises are presented with clear explanatory illustrations, and accompanying online videos of seniors practicing Qigong support both individual and group instruction. The final part of the book describes the Chinese understanding of nutrition as an essential underpinning of good health into old age, and provides health-giving food and drink recipes for people with dementia based on these principles. There is also a helpful chapter on practicing Qigong to protect against caregiver burnout. This will be an invaluable book for care professionals, nurses, activity coordinators, and physical therapists, as well as people with dementia and their families.
