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 Hong Liu, 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.
