  1. I love Baduanjin, have been doing it for a few years now, and plan to offer open sessions to my stress management clients. It's a great way to boost one's health (stressed-out people tend to have stressed-out immune systems, too), and engage in some relaxing movement with a group of like-minded people. (The energy of the group and the environment is important.)

    Thanks for a great website, too...very extensive and informative!

    I've just started blogging - finally got talked into it! - and I hope you will visit my blog as well.
