Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine come together in the Purposeful Exercise System
Yueh-Ching Chung has been active from a young age. Involved with movement-based activities such as sports and dance, she knows how important it is to move her body with purpose. Blending the ancient traditions of Chinese philosophy and movement with the scientific knowledge of western medicine, Chung has developed the Purposeful Exercise System, which she shares in her new book, “One Body, One Life Within your Control.”
Chung’s exercise system consists of three programs designed to help readers rebuild the fundamental focus on anatomy and kinesiology that may have been missed when they started participating in their chosen exercise or sport. Chung hopes that with this new-found knowledge and awareness, readers will understand how to use the right muscles and improve proper alignment using the correct technique.
“This program can be applied to any physical activity,” Chung said. “Mastering these skills is a gratifying growing process that produces confidence and improved health.”
The book covers the three fundamentals: breath, nutrition, and exercise. With these tenets, Chung shares how readers can reach their optimal health. In addition, Chung has made over 100 YouTube videos that help to walk readers through the exercises in the book.
