All-natural facelift: Relax away wrinkles and sagging— ‘Vital Face’ featured in Woman’s World Magazine

We’re thrilled to announce that Woman’s World Magazine, with a circulation of 7 million, has featured our book, Vital Face: Facial Exercises and Massage for Health and Beauty by physiotherapist Leena Kiviluoma in the December 9th issue!

Here’s a snippet from the article:

“Turn back the clock—and feel more relaxed? It’s not only possible, it’s easy to erase lines, creases and stress without pricey products! The key: ‘Giving your face a mini-lift’ says physiotherapist Leena Kiviluoma. ‘With precise massage and stretching techniques, you can reduce tension in your face, making your skin look smoother, and relaxing your whole body!’

The science behind the moves:

  • Increasing blood circulation
  • Draining away bloat
  • Strengthening facial bones
  • Stimulating collagen production

These exercises create age-proofing changes in and beneath the skin.

To read the complete feature on Vital Face, click here.

Vital Face is a fully-illustrated handbook that guides the reader through stretching and massage techniques to relax the facial, neck and shoulder muscles, with particular emphasis on the jaw, where tension is often held. The exercises address health issues such as teeth clenching and grinding, pain in the face, jaw, head or neck, and can even improve the effects of Bell’s Palsy. They also achieve positive cosmetic results such as reduced facial lines and healthy glowing skin. The English language edition is published by  Singing Dragon.

See Damo Mitchell at the National Qigong Association Conference, July 27, in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, USA

Damo Mitchell, author of the bestselling books Daoist Nei Gong and Heavenly Streams, will deliver the keynote address at the National Qigong Association’s 18th Annual Conference on Saturday, July 27, 2013 in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. This event represents Damo’s second excursion to the US, following a series of successful lectures in the fall of 2012.

Damo’s keynote at the NQA conference is entitled Nei Gong: A Union of Qigong, Philosophy and the Dao.

This talk will focus on the Daoist transformational teachings of Nei Gong. Like a conduit for the forces of Yin and Yang, human beings can learn how to connect with and utilize the Qi of the environment to gain better health and psychological well-being. For any process there must be a catalyst, a pivotal factor which leads to progression; Nei Gong is the study of this process. Firmly built upon a foundation of philosophical teachings, Nei Gong provides a systematic way to experience the essence of the teachings of the Dao. In this address, Damo will discuss the meaning of Nei Gong, the philosophy which underpins it and lift the shroud on much of the secrecy surrounding its teachings.

Following his keynote, Damo will be signing copies of his books, Daoist Nei Gong and Heavenly Streams, at a reception hosted by Singing Dragon.

To attend, please register for the conference: NQA Conference Registration

Damo Mitchell has studied the martial, medical and spiritual arts of Asia since the age of four. His studies have taken him across the planet in search of authentic masters. He is the technical director of the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts, and teaches Nei Gong in the UK, Sweden and the United States.

Daoist Nei Gong: The Philosophical Art of Change
“This book drills down into the golden core of the ancient Chinese art and science of internal self-cultivation known as “Chi Gung” or “energy work”, and after reading it, you’ll understand why Chi Gung is the best way on earth to protect your health, prolong your life, and clarify your awareness of both aspects of the “Three Treasures” of life – mortal body, breath, and mind; and immortal essence, energy, and spirit.”
– Daniel Reid    More…
