Chi Kung for Cancer Patients - Saint Barnabas Medical Center

Presented by the Saint Barnabas Cancer Program Department of Psychosocial Support Services, the mind-body practice of Chi Kung involves physical movement, mental focus and deep breathing. The class is taught by Miriam Shankman, a Certified Chi Kung Teacher and Healer with 16 years of experience.

“Chi Kung is a form of Tai Chi. It is often described as “Meditation in Motion” but it could also be called “Medication in Motion”. There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. You can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best health.” - Harvard Women’s Health Watch, May 2009
