From 'A to Z' - Anxiety to Zen

From A to Z is a complete program to help you reduce or eliminate your anxiety. You will learn why you are experiencing anxiety from a Western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view and many ways to help reduce it. In the first video you will feel like you are sitting down and having a conversation about what anxiety is and how it affects you. The second video discusses several tools that you can start using immediately. In the third video you will create your own written personalized plan using the tools and techniques learned. The last videos are three Qi gong routines from Jeff's collection that he feels are particularly effective for calming the mind and releasing anxious energy.
