An endorsement for ChiWalking from Dr. William Mullins

March 26th, 2008

ChiWalking is a walking technique that places much less stress than conventional walking on the joints and supporting structures in the legs and back. I have recommended the technique to many patients who suffer from arthritis in the legs and/or back, but would like to continue to walk regularly for exercise. Using ChiWalking, my arthritis patients are able to walk farther, more frequently, and with less discomfort, than they were able to previously. In turn, their ability to do more exercise improves the strength in the legs and back, and helps retard further progression of the arthritis.

One patient with severe, advanced bilateral knee osteoarthritis recently incorporated the ChiWalking technique not only for exercise walking, but for all his walking all day, every day. His knee pain has improved well beyond what we ever expected or hoped for, and at least for now, he has avoided the need for knee replacement surgery. He sends his heartfelt thanks to Danny Dreyer!


ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
