Going through menopause for some women is like a crazy roller coaster ride. One where strange sensations seesaw between feeling hot and cold; happy and sad; confident and depressed. Meanwhile there are the constants: sore back, fatigue, heavy bleeding and the cancer risks of menopausal hormone therapy.
In ancient times, Korean women began using a natural way to take the edge off menopause. A simple, pleasant self-healing energy art called Danjeon breathing and for centuries, it has been helping to make life easier for women going through menopause. Now you can in the following 5 ways.
1. BREATHING TO REDUCE FATIGUE while doing the” Kicking feet together” exercise
Effective breathing is integral to most self-healing arts and Danjeon Breathing is a way to literally refuel the body with greater oxygenation and healing energies just as we do as infants. It’s about re-learning to breath from the belly as we do as infants, instead of being adult chest breathers. Visualize breathing in pure energy with your inhalation and then visualize breathing out impure energy with your exhalation as you breathe all the way down to below your belly. As you do this kick your feet together and feel the fatigue leave your body.
2. GETTING YOUR EMOTIONS UNDER CONTROL Danjeon Breathing exercise
In today’s competitive job market, what could be worse than wanting to cry at the office? That’s why Danjeon Breathing is a great way to help fight back the tears, anywhere and anytime. You do it by focusing your concentration on one spot in your body. By consciously breathing in and out keeping your focus below your belly area to become more centered and less emotional, as your attention is focused on breathing, not the emotion.
3. COOLING THOSE HOT FLUSHES Kicking feet together, arm swings and shoulder lifts
Based on Chinese acupuncture, Danjeon Breathing is non-invasive and works through a meditative movement of body parts related to specific symptoms. For example, kicking the feet together cools hot flushes. Conversely, relief from cold chills comes from doing arm swings and shoulder lifts to increase circulation.
4. HELP RELIEVE BACKACHE Swinging legs exercise
Whether you’re having a rough menstrual cycle or menopause, lower back pain and muscle tension can be incredibly limiting. A simple Danjeon Breathing pose can help release that tension, using simple movement with a meditative focus. You lie down on your stomach, lift up your legs and swing them from side to side.
5. INCREASE CLARITY AND CONFIDENCE Circle wrists , and waist exercise
Menopause hits women at many levels and result in frustrating bouts of forgetfulness, frustration and impaired confidence. With Danjeon Breathing you bounce back with focus, by circling your wrists and waist,this helps send more oxygen to the brain to naturally bolster your clarity and confidence.
The only difference between going through menopause today as opposed to a thousand years ago is that today we rely more on pills and potions to control the symptoms of menopause. For centuries, women in the east have used Danjeon Breathing’s natural approach of focus, visualization and movement and this method has endured because it works. It worked then and it still works today.
