The Science of Mind and Body Therapies


Mind and body practices—such as tai chi, yoga, and meditation—focus on the interactions among the brain, mind, body, and behavior, with the intent to use the mind to affect physical functioning and promote health.

This video series features videos on tai chi, qi gong, yoga, and meditation. Both videos are available for download in QuickTime format. You can use a media manager like iTunes to view and sync them to your media device. You can also view the videos on NCCIH's YouTube.
