Gentle Qigong exercises and breathing techniques to improve the wellbeing of people with dementia

About the Author

Stephen Rath, MA, and his wife, Marcia Rath, MEd, have been students and practitioners of Qigong and Tai Chi since 1997. They live in Denver, Colorado, and in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, where they teach Qigong.


As the average human life span has steadily increased since the last century, dementia has become a major challenge to the wellbeing of the aging population. How to prevent, treat and improve dementia is a task our society faces. To solve this task, a combined effort is needed from different philosophies and medical fields - a place where the East meets the West...This book provides clear and concise information about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Medicine in order to help readers understand Qigong's benefit for this illness. The format of the exercises are easy to understand and practice. I hope this book will bring new light in fighting dementia and improving the quality of life for our elders. -- Dr. Shi Cheng, MM (China), Dipl. Ac., Vice President and Co-Founder of Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CSTCM), Denver, CO

This book is an extraordinary and valuable source of information about natural healing fundamentals for maintaining good health and wellbeing. It reveals endured wisdoms and secrets more than five thousand years old. I personally benefited from using exercises and nutritional information that were explicitly described in the book - I retired from office at age eighty-eight.
Although the target is dementia and aging, the information applies to all aspects of remaining fit and healthy. It is detailed, shared actual cases, easy to understand, and the exercise illustrations are precise. I urgently recommend this book to people of all ages who want to stay healthy.

-- U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka (RET)
Stephen Rath details current research and traditional Chinese medicine theory to show how qigong practice can support cognitive functioning, as well as emotional and physical well-being, in people with dementia. The book presents a set of exercises and breathing techniques adapted specifically for older people who may have limited mobility, which address specific symptoms associated with dementia. -- International Therapist
