Chinese Health Balls is an exercise system that’s been in use for over 2,000 years. Use of the Chinese Health Balls can improve strength, flexibility, dexterity and circulation in the fingers, hands and wrists. In addition, they can relieve joint stiffness and soreness while relaxing muscles and joints, reducing the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, repetitive strain injury, rheumatism and arthritis. They are deeply relaxing, can help reduce stress, improve overall health, stimulate the mind and reduce your risk of cognitive decline, including dementia and Alzheimer’s. These have a wide range of application for both the general public and health professionals. A free set of Chinese Health Balls is included.

The message he conveys to his students is one of healing and non-aggression. In other words, find peaceful, energetic ways to help heal the body, mind and spirit of those we interact with so the use of self-defense techniques is only considered as a very last resort.
