ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nan Cameron, MSN, RN, LAc opened the Cameron Clinic of Oriental Medicine in Wilmington, NC in March of 2000 after receiving her Masters in Oriental Medicine degree from the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, NM. Nan spent the summer of 1999 completing a clinical internship in hospitals in Beijing and Chengdu.

Nan practiced as a registered nurse for more than 20 years before returning to school to study Traditional Chinese Medicine. She received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Kentucky and a Masters of Science in Nursing degree in oncology (cancer nursing) from Gwynedd- Mercy College.

Nan continues to advance her knowledge through continuing education programs. She has studied with David Euler and Kiiko Matsumoto for several years to learn Kiiko style Japanese acupuncture. Kiiko style and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) are both based on the Chinese classics and modern medical pathophysiology to bring out the best in both.

In addition to a busy clinical practice, Nan offers education programs for healthcare professionals, patients and the public. The Smiling Practice is the result of many requests for a CD format of this popular qi gong meditation taught in her workshop The Three Free Therapies: Deep Relaxation, Nutrition and Movement. Nan began a daily meditation practice in the 70’s and added qi gong to her morning routine while attending Chinese Medicine School. Nan likes to take time each day to nurture her mind, body and spirit.

Nan was appointed and served on the North Carolina Acupuncture Licensing Board (NCALB) from December of 2003 to June 2008. She served as Secretary from January 2004 - January 2006 and Chair from February 2006 - February 2008.

Nan is licensed as an acupuncturist by the NCALB. She is recognized as a Diplomat in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She maintains licensure as Registered Nurse in North Carolina.

Warm, enlivening practice
The smiling practice is a form of qi-gong meditation. Unlike the more active forms of qi-gong, such as Tai Chi, this meditation practice is fully reliant on the power of the mind. Nan Cameron provides sweet, lovely guidance throughout and the practice includes beautiful sounds, which are relaxing yet not intrusive. Nan initiates the smile within, starting with the eyes, where every true smile emanates. She then moves from the head to to the neck, and the torso. From there, as you are guided to smile with your heart and lungs, then the major organs, including the liver, kidneys and then the spleen and pancreas. She then directs your awareness to the digestive system, followed by a substantial integration of the practice. This is a wonderful practice, wonderfully led. As for me, every time I do this practice in the morning I can feel myself always more relaxed and happy throughout the day.

Pure relaxation
I began listening to The Smiling Practice several months ago and it has made a significant impact. For nearly the past 10 years I have had health issues that caused a major shift in my life. With that came bitterness, anger, resentment, fear, anxiety, etc. My energy become so blocked that I went from an outgoing, engaging person to a sheltered worry wart, adding to my health problems. Since listening to The Smiling Practice, a dramatic change has taken place. I feel more at peace with myself and others around me. I have a greater sense of self confidence and a much more positive outlook on life. Most importantly, my mental and physical health has improved, as have my relationships. I am also more active now than I have been in years thanks to a major reduction in my anxiety. As my health continues to improve, I find The Smiling Practice to be a valuable asset in all aspects of my life.

The great thing about this program is that you can learn to utilize the techniques without the need for the CD. I much prefer the CD, as it provides me with a sense of relaxation as if I just came from a spa treatment. It relaxes my mind and body, yet at the same time, I feel energized, but in a much more balanced way. I feel "in the zone", similar to how athletes feel when they are free of worry and in a state of mind where they feel as though no challenge is insurmountable. Fears, concerns, worries, etc. that were bothering me disappear when I listen to the CD. Nan Cameron's voice also provides a very peaceful and calming environment. I have listened to many relaxation/meditation CD's and this is by far the best.
