MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In honor of today’s World Mental Health Day, Carmine “Tony” Colarusso, a master and Sifu of Chinese internal martial arts, encourages those interested in managing their mental health to learn more about stress management tools like chi kung (qi gong) and other disciplines of the internal energy arts.
“Sound mental health is vital for overall wellness. Unfortunately, many people do not know how to go about finding help. After having personally experienced the value of mastering the internal energy arts, my own life as a busy father and professional has been enriched. I have felt compelled to share this gift with others in order to help them take control of their own health,” said Colarusso.
Recent statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) indicate that 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness over the course of a year. Prolonged stress and traumatic experiences can also contribute to temporary symptoms of mental illness and are harmful to overall health. The NIMH therefore recognizes the importance of stress-coping programs that incorporate meditation, Tai chi and other gentle exercises as effective aids in stress management.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, life’s daily challenges can limit the natural flow of energy in the body and often describes depression as a disharmony or blockage of the two main energy streams—yin and yang.
Using his extensive knowledge of martial arts, as practiced at the Southern Shaolin Temple in southern China, including Zen meditation, Tai chi chuan (taiji) and chi kung (qi gong), Sifu Colarusso has helped hundreds of people around the world understand the nature, process, and benefits of harnessing energy to help calm the mind and overcome daily challenges. Taking 15 minutes a day to incorporate a few simple and effective exercises can help restore the natural flow of life, or energy, in the body by removing blockages caused by stress.
