Body Talk: Unleashing the Flow of Energy in the Wrist08/13/2014

Released on August 6th, 2014

      

Energy Flowing through the wrist

The importance of a joint cannot be underestimated, and one of the most utilized is the wrist. Aiding in hand movements, finger functions, and even some movements of the arms, a twist of the wrist can make all the difference in whether you can get things done. However, as a joint involved in such a variety of physical activity it can also be susceptible to pain. 

Ailments can include: Tendonitis, with pain and swelling caused by inflammation of the tendon sheath; Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, which results when the median nerve is pinched or compressed as it passes through the wrist joint; and Writer’s Cramp, which develops from repeated hand or finger movements such as writing or typing. 

Wrist pain is an indication of a blockage in the flow of energy. Our whole body is connected by energy, and often our physical condition is affected by our mental state. Awareness of what is happening in our body is the first step to healing. Understanding the flow of energy meridians, pathways which channel the flow of energy through our body, helps us to understand their connection to our emotions. 

One of the meridians that run along the wrist area is the Lung Meridian. In Eastern Medicine, blockages in this meridian are associated with sadness, grief, loss and uncertainty. Another meridian passing through the wrist is the Large Intestine Meridian, which has been associated with feelings of being stuck, dogmatic positions, rigidity, and defensiveness. 

Consciously releasing energy along these meridians can help release unresolved feelings. Maybe you are at work and feeling “chained to your desk.” Maybe you feel the need to be in control and always right. Maybe you cannot seem to let go of the loss of a loved one. You can change this. The process begins with the simple step of acknowledging the feeling, and then taking new action. 

Dahn Yoga offers many ways to get your energy moving. Here are a couple of exercises to help you release energy and begin to feel free, flexible, and tolerant. Take a deep breath, exhale, and begin. 


WRIST SHAKING
•Hold your arms at your side with your hands held loosely above your shoulders
•Make sure each elbow is at a 90 Degree angle 
•Shake your wrists, while keep your hands loose and relaxed (they will feel “floppy”) 
•Keep shaking for at least one minute


ARM TWISTS
•Cross your wrists, bring your palms together and interlace your fingers
•Inhale and bend your elbows to bring your hands toward your chest. 
•Your clasped hands will move under your arms in a circular motion. 
•Complete the circular motion until your arms are completely extended. 
•Continuing to clasp your hands, tilt your head backward and stretch. 
•Hold for few seconds, exhale and return to the beginning position
•Switch the position of the hands, so that a different hand is dominant and repeat

    Initial Awakening

    Venue : Dahn Yoga nomal Center
    Initial Awakening Workshop Have you ever truly "watched" yourself? Or do you find that your mind often wanders off, consumed with thoughts, tasks, and plans, as well as memories of the past and worries of the future? If your mind isn't in your body, neither is your energy. In this state, your body quickly loses its power. Then you begin to feel that chronic weakness, fatigues and an inability to use your body as you wish are just a natural part of life. In this workshop, an experienced trainer will guide you to carefully observe your body, thoughts and emotions while helping you sense and strengthen your lower core to develop a stronger connection with your body. You will gain a deeper understanding of your body's energy system and how Ki energy works as an intermediary between your mind and body. Benefits include: improvement in your physical condition (strengthen your core), enhanced mental focus and concentration, increase in overall energy levels and more. Course fee: $295, Location: Vienna Dahn Yoga Center. Please call for more information, or to register for the program. 301-595-2056
