  3. Dear Michael,

    Thanks for your mail and healing wishes.

    Reg. my backache problem, I have been earnestly and diligently working on points B47, 48, 54, etc, despite aggrevation initially- may be due to degeneration as I suffer from osteoporosis or may be that I press wrong locations. But after a couple of weeks, I had to stop as I found the pain unabated. Though I was very much able to perform acuyoga including rocking, I had to stop it, tho reluctantly.

    Of late, people close to me tell me that I have developed slight hunch on my back, with my shoulders slightly stooping forward. Have you got any solution to get over this?

    Looking forward to your valuable mail.


    • Thank you for sharing what you are experiencing. For the hunching, try grasping one hand (or the wrist) behind your buttocks area. Inhale and gentle arch back, with your chest coming upward and outward, holding for just a few seconds, and exhale down and relax. If you get dizzy firmly in the center of your upper gum for a full minute to stabilize you. Start with just 3 of these and slowly increase the repetitions.

      If you suffer from osteoporosis, I would take a very different approach. Practice a good set of easy breathing exercises 3 to 5 times daily. Here is a great set of Qi Gong breathing exercises on DVD that I do myself and the benefits are tremendous.
