Brain Workshop Visualizations Set- 3 videos
As a neuroscientist, I consider these three visualizations the most important information I teach. They are extremely beneficial to the brain and nervous system. This information came from spirit, and from all my wonderful teachers. I have given these dvds as gifts to many customers who have bought other titles from MastersFromChina so I offer all three for only $4.95. If you wish to write to me I will send them to you. Please refer to the Study Guide in the menu bar at left, especially the Relaxation and Meditation page.
Brain Circulation Visualization video is an extension of the non-moving meditation that guides you to fill the brain and body with energy, light and love. This visualization/meditation practice brings spiritual energy and earth energy to the heart, profoundly affects sense of well being calming the nervous system, reduces fear and anger, and trains the mind to bring healing energy to specific affected areas of the body. This practice benefits sleep and reduces stress, anxiety and depression. This daily bedtime practice is step one for everything. 19 min.
Get Balance Visualization is an extension and expansion of the visualization on Brain Workshop focusing on Zhong Ding central equilibrium line. Focus on Zhong Ding is a major moving meditation (mindfulness practice). It creates superior balance.

—Multiple Sclerosis and Brain Workshop
Head and Neck Qigong Exercise, Massage, Visualization and Movement Therapy tools that vastly improve blood circulation to the brain:
Head and neck qigong and relaxation exercises, massage and visualizations serve many purposes. Foremost is to provide an abundant blood supply to the brain to deliver nutrients and regulatory chemicals and improve lymphatic circulation to remove waste and accumulated toxins. Qigong, mindfulness training, uses powerful relaxation visualizations to improve oxygen and energy to the brain, eyes and ears. The visualizations activate the parasympathetic system to induce relaxation, increase mental focus, and increase vital energy called qi. Movement Therapy includes upper body spine, neck and shoulder loosening through relaxation. Sitting in chair exercises include abdominal exercises that increase blood circulation to the internal organs, aid digestion, improve incontinence, relaxation, digestion and sleep. Head and Neck Qigong exercises are provided on Energy Gathering and Blood Circulation Qigong DVD with Susan Matthews, MS, ND. This Qigong video is an excellent home practice aid for any age or ability. Exercises directly stimulate the immune system, internal organs, brain, lymph and blood circulation, skin circulation, and energy flow in the meridians. Great for detoxification of the tissues.
