Tremors In Terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Tremors in TCM terms are often due to the lack of smooth flow of Qi (energy) in the body. The Liver and Kidney systems are primarily involved along with what is termed “Internal Wind”. Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease are not the same thing, however we can employ Qigong methods to help manage the tremors resulting from both conditions.
Qigong for Tremors – Reduction
There are many simple methods of Qigong for tremors and their reduction. All Qigong methods generally help to smooth the flow of energy throughout the body, opening up the pathways of Qi flow so that they become unobstructed. Of particular use are Qigong methods which focus on balancing the function of the Liver and Kidney systems and clear Internal Wind.
Qigong for Cleansing
This method of Qigong for tremors rids waste or turbid Qi from the body (including Internal Wind) and can therefore help to reduce shaking in the body. You can learn this method in a previous video I made, Qigong for Cleansing.
Qigong Circles Method
This method moves your Qi in all four directions (up, down, in and out) and so has a strong effect on promoting unobstructed Qi flow, allowing the body to bring itself back into balance. It’s very easy and suitable for beginners. Click here to watch the video.
The Liver system is related to the tendons in TCM. Any exercise which stretches the tendons (and muscles) will help to smooth the flow of Qi throughout the Liver system, improving its function and thereby helping to reduce tremors. Refer to these two previous videos for some simple stretches to follow along with:
A Qigong Stretch for Athletes – not only for athletes but for anyone who wants to stretch and smooth the flow of Qi from the lower back down the backs of the legs.
A Simple Qigong Stretch – this stretch opens up the chest and upper back.
Exhale the Negative With Qigong Breathing
You can use Qigong breathing to exhale anything you don’t want in your body or mind (physical or mental). Use the method here to exhale the tremor. Try it for 10 minutes and compare how you feel before and after the exercise. Click here to watch a previous video of this method in more detail.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Tremor Reduction
Both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can also be effective in the relief of tremors. Read one of many research articles on how helpful acupuncture can be in managing tremors by clicking here.
