Tai Chi for Depression
Depression is related to Qi and blood stagnation of internal organs, especially the heart and the liver. Genetic factors that cause stagnated energy in the liver, which is the primary organ related to depression, can be passed on to children. There is saying in Chinese medicine: the liver and kidney are from the same source. Therefore, people who have depression often have energy blockages in both the liver and the kidney. Heart energy imbalance is more likely caused by excessive stress after birth and then the damage extends to the liver and kidney. Eventually, it has a domino effect on all the other organs. When the organ “Qi” is stagnated, it affects blood circulation and causes blood stasis. Then the blood stasis causes all organs to decrease in their functions. Consequently there will be various symptoms.
In this book, Dr. Kuhn discusses the causes and treatments of depression from both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine points of view. She demonstrates a Tai Chi approach that removes the stagnation of Qi in the body, restores the vitality of organs and balances the mind.
Dr. Kuhn has been practicing natural healing for over three decades. She is an award-winning author and have published numerous books in the area of energy medicine and natural healing.

"I teach Yoga at two senior centers on Tuesdays. My classes are good size—fifteen to twenty people ranging from sixty to eighty- eight years in age. I’ve incorporated several of the Qi Gong movements into the practice. The response has been amazing, and we have been talking about a possible Qi Gong class in the fall. On Thursday of each week I teach at a different nursing home and know that the Qi Gong movements have trig- gered mental memories. Lots of participation and alertness. Namaste."- Pat B., Yoga Teacher from NJ
"I am doing the practice almost daily and feel more relaxed, more deeply centered, and balanced in my body. It feels so good to just walk down the street, and a hip/knee arthritis flare-up has disappeared. My massage work also feels more flowing and effortless—I have more energy and creativity. It is quite a wonder. Qi Gong feels like a healing dance to me, and I look for- ward to exploring, developing, and growing through it forever!" - Liz C., LMT from NC
"My life now is in major transition as my husband is taking a different path after many long years. The first day of class, Mary tuned right into it, and I must say it is amazing how much the weekend helped my frame of mind. After returning home, I’m happy to say I, too, have been doing the practice at least once a day, learning bit by bit. Yesterday, while at work, during a long day, I started to head toward a mini- meltdown and was able to go outside, stand next to my vehicle, and do the practice (to the best of my ability without watching the video)—it was truly fantastic how my mood changed and got me through the rest of the day effortlessly. It’s my stress reliever for sure. Thank you so much, Dr. Kuhn, for sharing your precious gifts and each and every one of you for making the weekend such an enjoyable life-changing experience." - Leslie O., LMT from ME
"I am so excited about the shift in my life since the training. I have so much more energy!! Thank you, Dr. Kuhn, for sharing your wealth of knowledge and gifts. I have been practicing daily and have felt a tremendous shift in my energy. My partner and a couple friends tell me I look different. The work is already giving me more clarity about changes in my life and decisions I need to make. It is amazing how much has occurred in such a short time! I look forward to seeing what unfolds in the future. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful energy! All the best to everyone!" - Roberta W., LMT from VT

I bought two videos from you and have been concentrating mostly on the 12 minute Qi Gong for computer users because of neck stiffness and b/c I am a glaucoma suspect. I've only been doing this a few weeks now but wanted to thank you b/c of how great my neck and shoulders feel. I have used yoga, massage, chiropracters, different types of pillows and nothing has worked like this. I will be very interested to see how my next eye appointment in April turns out. Thank you so much. - A Patient
