|LIVING WITH ARTHRITIS: SELF-HELP, |
Morning Workout with Darlene Cohen
"In this video, Darlene Cohen, who once suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, demonstrates arthritis exercises developed by the well-known healer and bodyworker Meir Schneider. Cohen and four of her students perform the three phases of therapeutic movement -- general stretching, done lying down; upper body, done sitting; and lower body, done standing. Viewers can follow the exercises in a continuous flow or concentrate on one particular area of the body.
The exercises focus on the breath, using small, gentle, rotational movements specific to particular joints; two separate body parts are rotated simultaneously in different directions. The precision of the movements enables the arthritis sufferer to achieve a sense of coordination, looseness, and freedom from pain. A 21-page booklet offers thorough instructions and a sound explanation of the philosophy behind Schneider's unique exercises. "
