Personal Story By Carolyn – A person who lives with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
“Several years ago I went to a Qigong class hoping to find a way to manage my pain, by working on building energy, balance and stamina.
At the beginning, I could barely walk and sat on a stool trying to learn the graceful movements I was seeing performed around me.
During the next several months, I learned a way to see within, moving what energy I had evenly throughout my body. With practice I learned to relax. In time I got rid of my stool and found myself focusing on what I could do and not lamenting on what I couldn’t do. My world changed.
I live with pain. It is my constant companion. I am also able to do things I want to do, respecting my need to rest and take care of myself.
After years of learning and practicing medical Qigong, I now teach others this wonderful alternative health method hoping they to will find a way to do the things they want to do as they live with their illness.”
